I am glad to share that I have been selected for the Taipei Artist Village residency in Taipei 2018.
Alongside 11 selected international artists I will do a research for a new production in collaboration with sound and video artist Tim Panduro, with whom I created SOLUS.

I am invited as a self-producing artist and look forward to share and debate visions and ideas with the rest of the panel and the audience

Review by Yi-Sheng from FiveLines:
“…their movement vocabulary ranges from twirling in unison to madcap wheelbarrowing of one another’s bodies across the stage.”
“Is there a message here? Possibly a criticism of the banality of mass media, the forced optimism of pop culture. But mainly, it’s fun.”

Release 5.0 Stage 2 | Review by Yi-Sheng
Review by Lee Mun Wai in The Straits Times:
“Danish choreographer Simone Wierod presented WWW, a rhythmically sensitive and slapstick dance performed to a carefully edited soundtrack of weather reports. The two dancers bounced energies off each other with impeccable timing.”
“I was suddenly very aware of the size of the world I live in.”
