Jue Yang: An Introduction

I like words and space. I guess you can call me one of the following based on your preferred framework: trans-media writer, writer for performance, playwright.

Currently intrigued by: the death of the artist, structure of the body, non-capitalist systems, ontology, small public spaces, the quantum fabric of space-time, paper.

Playwright

I have submitted scripts and applied to events and residencies as a playwright. It has been an identity in which I find freedom. (I do think, however, that the majority of the business mechanisms -- thus the expectations and products they generate -- are outdated. Working on it by learning, questioning, and innovating. Stay tuned.)

Identities in Transition

I have three portfolios summarizing my education and experiences as a working being. This includes being a cartographer, an aspiring architect, and a technologist (keywords: data, design, develop). Each one was created when I looked for the next job. As a writer, I have been re-evaluating such notion of a "working being". What kind of way of life is that? Before I had words to confidently answer that, I wrote a play for myself to figure it out.

Inklings of a Practice

I created some independent projects over the years because I felt the urge to have a practice, even though I could not give it a name then. I also wrote things when I did not know better, which I believe is ever ongoing.
