Described by the choreographer Yen-Cheng Liu as ‘a psychedelic fantasy,’ Monster is a daring, intense and quite possibly mind-blowing questioning of one’s sense of self. Created for his company Dua Shin Te Production, Liu uses symbolic props, spoken and written text, a carefully chosen soundtrack and, finally, an explosion of motion to help pick apart the mystery of individuality.  Receiving its international premiere on the Edinburgh Fringe, this is dance performance as a skewed yet strangely seductive thought experiment. And because everything on stage has a purpose, everything seen and heard there is also a clue. Playing sober games with time and identity, Liu’s hard-to-categorize adventure might lead you to discover the dear, fierce and vulnerably human monster inside yourself.
