Jason Vu is a nonbinary Vietnamese American dance and performance artist. A researcher in dance, somatic inquiry, sound and sensory attention, Vu creates practices and performances that ritualize non-oppressive ways of knowing, doing and becoming. He facilitates creative and educational spaces for people to embody relationships led by care and mutuality.
Vu is currently part of the 2023 exhibition at the Asian Arts Initiative in Philadelphia, where he will be installing two dance films and premiering an evening-length work, Through Noise. Previously, Vu has toured 48 cities throughout the U.S. and Europe dancing for singer Melanie Martinez (choreographed by Brian Friedman) and the performance company Dana Foglia Dance, which is internationally recognized for its innovation in contemporary dance and contributing choreography to Beyoncé’s performances in film, TV and live performance. His dance film Princess has screened at festivals in the UK, Canada, New York, Los Angeles and New Orleans, and is streaming globally on Nowness Asia.
