Luca Curci – When did you start practicing art and why?

Susan Yeung – My first experience with dance and piano started at the age of 5. My parents wanted me to be more patient with things in life and to improve my sense of awareness, therefore they got me in touch with art at such young age.

L.C. – Can you talk about your artistic work? Which are your inspirations?

S. Y. – My works are the reflections of life experiences and inspirations from other art forms. I draw inspirations from serious world topics to small little things that make me wonder about life and the magic that life brings upon us.

L.C. – What are you currently working on?

S. Y. – I’m working on two projects at the moment apart from LASALLE productions – 1. An opera project with an international cast and directors: using an Indian story “Kannagi” as backbone of the project and it will be premiered in Singapore in October this year. 2. I’m producing a performance under my group COLLECTIVE mayhem in September or November this year. The show will use dance film as the starting point and lead to the journey of a text and movement performance accompanied by live music in a gallery setting. 3. I’m also mentoring students and directing a collaborative production for LASALLE during mid March, while choreographing a piece for School of Dance and artistic directing the production in May.

L.C. – What was the best advice given to you as an artist?

S. Y. – No idea is a bad idea.

L.C. – What is art for you?

S. Y. – Art is something that is close to everyone’s daily life, but requires time and patience for it to be discovered and reinvented. It is an expression that surpasses various disciplines and the power of words, at times.

L.C. – What do you think about International ArtExpo organization?

S. Y. – It is an interesting organization that aims to break away the boundaries between different art forms and various disciplines, as well as providing a platform, for Art and Artist, to have the opportunity for further exchange and collaboration.

L.C. – Do you think International ArtExpo organization can represent an opportunity for artists?

S. Y. – Yes, as the event included artists from different regions, nations and locations.
