2020

Performed by dancer Yang Ching Hao of indigenous Paiwanese descent, Fast Life reflects on belonging, legacy and modernization.
The performer walks in, wearing a second-hand T-shirt with a bilingual slogan printed in English and Japanese, while carrying a watermelon in a plastic bag. Devoid of air and flexibility, a concrete cast of a ball is already present on stage.

The performance was produced during a residency at the indigenous Tjimur Arts Festival, Taiwan.
