ABOUT THE ARTIST
Shian Law is a rare outlier who broke into the mainstream of contemporary dance in Melbourne. Known for their audacious, rule bending and badass attitude to art making, Shian debuted choreographic works in Melbourne Fringe in 2010, winning Best Dance, and again in 2012, winning Innovation in Dance. Their mass participatory performance ‘Personal Mythologies’ (2014; Next Wave Festival) was nominated for a Greenroom award for Best Experimental Work. The work impressed Sydney Dance Company Artistic Director Rafael Bonachela so much, he commissioned Shian to create a new work, ‘Epic Theatre’, on the company, for New Breed 2017. Shian travelled extensively for international residencies in New York, Berlin, Paris, Chiangmai and Beijing, where they presented a performance lecture in Soil, Seances, Sciences and Politics: a Symposium for Posthumanism alongside contemporary philosophy luminaries at the Goethe Institute. Shian is a proud recipient of Tanja Liedke Scholarship. Most recently, Shian premiered Musica Ricercata, a co-commission by Australia Centre for Contemporary Arts and Chunky Move.
