"I wish I were mute so experiences and emotions could pass wordlessly through me. Yet nothing can enter me if I do not move towards it therefore I am still compelled to become a vessel of sorts. One that can absorb a child’s heart, the echo in a cave, the sweet smell of the earth as the first rumble of thunder is heard in the first days of spring, a pregnant pause when something is left unsaid, the intricacies of human life which art bestows…When I write poetry I am a vessel, when I dance Butoh I am another, likewise when I am engaged as a teacher in experimental education." Yu-Suan Wu's previous works include Exchanging Lovers’ Ribs, Decaying Anywhere:99 Love Letters from a Movie Fan, The World Without Names, Living in Nowhere, Escaping life, The Forgetting of Form: Sketches from my residency at Santa Fe.
