ABOUT JIE-HUNG (CONNIE) SHIAU
Jie-Hung (Connie) Shiau received her BFA in dance from SUNY Purchase College. Shiau has worked as a collaborator with an array of companies including Hubbard Street Dance Chicago, Kyle Abraham/Abraham.In.Motion, Gallim Dance, Helen Simoneau Danse, MeenMoves, Adam Barruch Dance, and Kevin Wynn Works. As a movement artist and choreographer, she thinks a lot about connection – human connection, spiritual connection, connection to the natural world, connection to images. Connection occurs when there is a spark between two things. It can be inspiring as much as it can be challenging – a bridge between experiences and perspectives. In her life, the bridge between her and her world, her people, is movement.
In addition, Shiau was a recipient of Chicago Dancemaker Forum Greenhouse Artist in 2019, New Choreographer Project in Taipei, Taiwan in 2019, Dance Magazine’s “25 To Watch” in 2018, Honorable Mention for Jadin Wong Award for Emerging Asian American Dancer in 2014, and Reverb Dance Festival Dancer Award in 2014.
