Dancer and choreographer Ying Hou is a member of the trailblazing generation of artists who began their careers with the Guangdong Modern Dance Company in the 1990s and includes such other luminaries as Shen Wei, Xing Liang, and Sang Jijia.
Ying breaks the consistence and the predictable moving order of traditional dance principles, attempting to use a stream-of-consciousness, vague and inconsequence expression to buils movements with their own independence. Therefore, the beginning of the movement is also the end of it. It is fleeting, like writing in water, like fragments flashing from memory, a replication of a dream.
Hou Ying received an ACC fellowship in 2011 to present workshops in Taiwan.
