Lucas Chih-Peng Kao
Lucas Chih-Peng Kao is a dance filmmaker and physical performer based in Edinburgh.
As a dance filmmaker, I had developed a body of work working with choreographer and dancers to make documentary, experimental narrative, music videos and installations.
In April 2017 I was one of the four artists to received the Megaphone residency to develop a multimedia performance “Catch Up with Self” about identity with choreographer Kai-Wen Chuang, mixing video, dance, movement where we both performed on stage in the work in progress sharing during The Worker’s Festival on the 11th/June.
The sharing was full housed and received very positive reviews from the audience which gives us confidence to develop the work further.
Since then I had been developing myself as a movement practitioner and performer using techniques from dance, contact improvisation and physical theatre. Recently I finished a Voice and Movement workshop with Anna Porubcansky from Company of wolves.
I want to join Workroom to continue developing both performance work and dance film with workroom members and share, I believe my background in filmmaking and photography will be beneficial and able to help other members and my work is unique and interesting.
