NEW IN RESIDENCY: Ping-Hsiang Wang

Ping-Hsiang Wang is a theatre director from Taiwan. His work has focused on how human behavior is being disciplined and modified through the evolution of materiality, the internet, systems, machinery, the environment, and commerce.

Wang’s signature aesthetic is honed on the transference of normal daily landscapes into fantastic digital realities. He views theater as a perceptual vehicle for enabling new means of communication, and combines multiple performative elements using text, spoken language, sound, movement, live streaming video, objects, and scenography. His work posits narrative as a full sensory experience. 

His multimedia solo lecture performance, Retina Maneuver, intricately explores the evolving perspectives of Taiwanese millennials on conscription and military violence over the past decade. Against the backdrop of the People’s Republic of China’s territorial claim over the Taiwanese island, potentially leading to armed conflict, this exploration is enriched by a queer lens, shedding light on the nuanced experiences and anxieties of LGBTQ+ individuals within the broader geopolitical landscape.
