Jee Chan is an artist, dancer and choreographer whose practices make visible that which is always already there (big and true, just beneath the surface). Their work is often informed by a soft sensitivity to site as well as a sustained interrogation of (post)colonial power. Born in Singapore, they are currently based in Berlin.
Their work has been performed and presented at Dance Nucleus, Singapore; Uferstudios, Berlin; SAVVY Contemporary, Berlin; Studio Plesungan, Surakarta; SWG3, Glasgow; Carico Massimo, Livorno; and Liveworks Festival of Experimental Art, Gadigal / Sydney. They hold a BA (Hons) in Contemporary Performance Practice from the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, where they were an RCS Undergraduate Scholar and a founding member of the People of Colour Collective. They have also studied Beijing Opera at the Shanghai Theatre Academy on a Shanghai Municipal Government Scholarship, and Dance / Context / Choreography at the HZT Berlin on an Erasmus Study Grant.
They have facilitated workshops and sharings as visiting artist at the “Beyond Repair” Summer School of the German Pavilion, 58th Venice Biennale and on the HFK Bremen fine arts programme (2019-2020), in collaboration with the visual artist, Stefan Pente; as well as at nGbK Berlin (2021), in collaboration with Interflugs, an autonomous student organization at the Berlin University of the Arts.
