“Did you know that Bruce Lee was a Cha Cha Cha champion?” This is how Junyi Sun describes his solo project, which came about as a result of his curiosity about the popular 1970s figure, regarded by many as a legend. Junyi searches for the connection points and parallels that he has with the artist, from origins and professional careers to ideals and desires, bringing them to life in this personal show, halfway between dance and martial arts.

Junyi Sun has worked and collaborated with several companies from around the world. He was awarded the 2017 Critics Prize for best dancer for the Sol Picó company’s show Dancing with frogs, and the 2014 Critics Prize as revelation artist for the show Kyla, directed by Adrian Devant. He is currently directing the Kernel Dance Theatre, a Barcelona dance company which is developing its own language by integrating contemporary dance with theatre and martial arts, to create projects that invite audiences to reflect on and discover new points of view on current affairs.
