MICHELLE SUI is a multidisciplinary artist, performer, and filmmaker.
Their work exists at the intersection of film, choreography, installation, voice, oral history, audio and new technologies and draws upon the body in relation to cinematic histories, language in translation, the performance of femininity and the dislocations of memory.
Michelle's immersive multimedia work have been presented in Germany, Italy, Poland, the Republic of Georgia, and throughout the U.S. Their decade long research in polyphonic folk and ritual music traditions has taken them to study and perform in many post-Soviet landscapes of Eastern Europe and the Caucasus. They are known for their vocal performance work that merges choreographic and vocal improvisations, and have taught embodied voice techniques at University of Michigan, UC Irvine, and Loyola Marymount University.
Michelle has performed and/or been in residency at MOCA, Walker Art Center, BAM, LA Music Center, REDCAT, Hammer Museum, Marciano Art Foundation, Atlantic Center for the Arts, La MaMa, Abrons Arts Center, Rubin Museum of Art, and Park Avenue Armory.
Their work has received support from Foundation of Contemporary Arts, Center for Asian American Media, Sundance, Rauschenberg Foundation, California Arts Council, New York Foundation for the Arts, Bang on a Can, Poets and Writers, and the Leslie Scalapino Award for Innovative Women Performance Writers. They hold a BFA from New York University Tisch School of the Arts.
