'HEY' is the first dance Weichen made after her return to Melbourne. Originally from China, Weichen spent considerable years dancing in Australia and the U.S. This work came from her nomadic experience, regardless of distance. It embodies the metabolism of the human body and its connection to nature, culture, and society.

About Weichen Cui 崔未尘

Weichen Cui 崔未尘 is an international movement artist and educator currently based in Naarm/Melbourne, Australia. Originally from China, Weichen trained in traditional forms of Chinese dance and martial arts. She earned her first bachelor’s degree in philosophy from Fudan University in Shanghai. She moved to Australia in 2015 and started her career as a dancer from the Victorian College of the Arts. In the past few years, Weichen has studied and danced in New York and presented works in venues including The Clemente, Green Space, Jack Crystal Theater, Frederick Loewe Theater, and the Marlene Meyerson JCC Manhattan. She received dual master’s degrees—an MFA in dance from Tisch and an MA in dance education from the Steinhardt School of New York University in 2022.

Weichen firmly believes that the life of art and the art of life are one. Similarly, artistic praxis and research are inseparable as they are driven by inquiries into humanity and pursuing how we construct the world with its gifts and traumas from history. She strives to bring her most vulnerable and honest self to the audience and create works that portray genuine identities and in-depth reflections based on daring questions.
