YUEXING (STAR) SUN
Yuexing (Star) Sun (she/her) is a performance maker shifting between director, deviser, and performer. Her works center individual narratives as they confront larger social frameworks swayed by history, identity, and politics. Using technology and movement, she builds uncommon experiences embracing poetic physicality and multi-surfaced existence. Her work weaves intercultural texture from her Eastern/Western intertwined background. Her current focus is female identity and stillness. Her ongoing project, One-Minute Memoir, places her as a female representative standing still in various private or public domains for one minute to sense grounding and belongings. Yuexing is also a program manager who works on international festivals and projects in dance, theater, and performing arts fields. She holds a BA in Japanese Studies from Beijing Foreign Studies University, and an MFA in Theatre from Sarah Lawrence College.
