Drawing on the influence of his mother on his work as an artist and working with an all female cast, Ying Yun will explore themes of identity, gender, representation, recognition, power, endurance and struggle. “Ying Yun is my mother’s name.

For You, For Me
Amber Funk Barton/the response.
In celebration of the Dancing on the Edge Festival’s 30th Anniversary, For You, For Me, is a brief solo giving thanks to a space and the people who have played a significant part in my life as a dance artist. For me, it is an opportunity to reflect at large on what I have been given, on what I have yet to receive and what I have misplaced.
