emptied memories

Directed by Tung-Yen Chou
Video co-design with Pin-Chen Chen

Emptied Memories is the ongoing exploration into space and memory through theater and moving image that director Chou, Tung-Yen has undertaken in recent years. In 2011-2012, under the sponsorship of Ministry of Culture, he invited the choreographer Chou, Shu-Yi to try to co-create an “empty space” by using “space” and “memory” as the core from which to start. The creation employs the technological integration of panoramic video, real-time image processing, sensors and wireless stage control system. The performer drives the external deformation of the material world, echoing the internal state, in order to present the organic flow of one’s mind landscape.”
