New production on tour: kNOwn Face 不要臉 by Chen-Wei Lee

Global Arts Link is excited to add Belgian-Taiwanese choreographer-dancer Chen-Wei Lee’s latest production kNOwn Face 不要臉 to our list of international touring productions. In this dazzling new solo using a self-held camera and live projections, Chen-Wei takes an in-depth look at the selfie phenomenon, bringing the audience up close and personal to the performer, to confront this form of modern-day narcissism, with a clever pun on “shamelessness” in the Chinese title.
