My name is Waeli Wang and I am a choreographer, filmmaker, and dance educator. I borrow from the concept of "akasha," meaning a supposed universal etheric field in which a record of past events is imprinted, to describe my practice of sourcing and collecting a wide range of movement and imagery, figurative and abstract, and from the personal poetic. Inspired by my Asian heritage and identity, I explore current socio-political contexts through my identity in the work I create, often blending dance and film to immerse audiences.
