Hi, I'm Kyson
Born in Batu Pahat, Johor, Malaysia, I graduated professionally from Taipei Physical Education College (TPEC, currently University of Taipei, Tian-mu campus) majoring in dance study. Having a passion in performing art as a contemporary dancer, I also work as a choreographer and dance instructor.
During my time in Taiwan, I performed in TPEC’s annual dance performances, the Yosakoi Soran Festival in Japan, the 4th Tsai Jui-Yueh Dance Festival in Taiwan, etc. There, I have the opportunity to work with Chamber Ballet Taipei, Taipei Royal Ballet, Century Contemporary Dance Company, Off-Nibroll Dance Company (Japan) and WC Dance Theatre for dance performances, choreography and collaboration.
After my experiences in different countries, I presented my observation of the service cultures of different countries in choreography of “Service First” in various versions in Kuala Lumpur, Taipei and Tokyo between 2010 and 2011. I'm proud to have won the Excellence Prize in the National Chinese Dance Festival 2013 & 2014 with my creation “Raining Night & the Moonlight” and “Link”. I was also one of the selected artists in d’Next Artist Project 2015 and have the opportunity to present my choreography “Trace”. In 2015, I have the opportunity to be a guest dancer for Ergao Dance Production in China and performed in Wuzhen Theatre Festival, Macau City Fringe Festival and Guangdong Dance Festival.
Formerly a dancer of DPAC Dance Company under the guidance of JS Wong and performed in several international dance festivals in Malaysia, Singapore, Japan and India, I'm now a dance artist of Kwang Tung Dance Company. I have participated in the company’s production such as “SEPULUH”, “Bisikan Monsoon” and toured in China such as Guangdong Dance Festival and Foshan Theatre in 2018. I'm also an independent artist, loving to collaborate with artists to create works related to the community such as the site-specific full-length work "Dancing at No. 26" in Batu Pahat in 2019 and "Where Souls Meet" in Kluang in 2020.
