Chou Kuan Jou (Taiwan)
Chou Kuan-Jou is a Taiwanese artist born and raised in Taipei. She is actively engaged in the fields of physical creation, performance, design, and education. Her work is inspired by the abnormality of bodies in daily lives, capturing behavior and movement from a choreographic angle and creating its own theatrical aesthetics. In recent years, she has focused on researching the somatic experiences of gender and sexuality.
She has been invited to international events such as CND Camping 2019, Tanzmesse 2022, and da:ns lab 2023 at Dance Nucleus. In 2021, she co-created the “Nyu Shu Movement” project with artist Chen Yi-Chin, as part of the Connect with SEA (Gender Issue): Residency in the CLOUD by Thinkers’ Studio. This project was showcased at the Loei Art Festival in Thailand and the Creators’ Cradle Circuit in Tokyo. In 2022, her work “TOMATO” was selected for the Taiwan Season at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, receiving a five-star review and several awards, including The Bobby Award.
