Blending complex imagery with dance, 3D printing and Xsens motion capture, The Inheritance has been earning rave reviews for a story about the spiritual pains that remain in families after a state of national unrest.  

Created by Storynest director Hsin-Chien Huang, The Inheritance wrestles with a time when Taiwan was under martial law (1949 to 1987). Closed borders, and the inability to communicate with people outside of Taiwan left many stranded abroad. Aid attempts discovered by the Investigation Bureau resulted in harassment at the home or on the street, leading to a state of constant fear in the populace.

Today Huang is still intrigued by state-sanctioned history and everything it conceals. Through The Inheritance, he grapples with his family’s struggle, using dance and various forms of new media to turn memories into a form of visual sculpture.
