The Jyun Jyun show is a unique exploration of ancestry, culture, nature, and technology. The show adapts ancient mythologies into contemporary storytelling, with narratives that draw attention to our shared global challenges and hopes for humanity. Animations are projected onto a custom screen while multi-instrumentalist Jyun Jyun plays original, folk infused electronic music, integrating traditional Chinese instruments and accompanied by a live percussionist. Using cutting edge technology, interactive visuals map onto performers’ bodies, responding directly to their movements. A video artist manipulates visual effects in real-time while shadow dancers and puppeteers perform.
