Zero Grasses: A Musical-Theatrical Performance
Featuring Jen Shyu (composition, vocals, dance, piano, Japanese biwa, Korean gayageum, Taiwanese moon lute, electronics).
Jen Shyu is a composer, multi-instrumentalist, dancer, and vocalist whose polymath talents are deftly synthesized in the ritualistic solo performance Zero Grasses. This new project of songs, sounds, utterances, and narratives addresses—and aims to heal—the loss of communication between humanity and nature, and the need to restore the bonds between one human being and another.
