Yiu Yiu (Liane)
movement artist, somatic practitioner, nature’s faith keeper, has been passionately exploring embodied movement within and without and is particularly interested in the process of ‘rewilding’ modern society through the deepening of mind/body relationships. Her work is guided by somatic, psychology, neuroscience, deep ecology, and buddhism, while her love for nature informs her way of being. She believes it is important to reconnect with one’s roots through cultivating a strong and intimate relationship with the land. As a recent newcomer of Mui Wo, through listening to the lost language of plants, the Art of Foraging is a practice to deepen her connection with nature and to ground herself in place.

Sap Fong 拾坊
Sap(拾) is to collect with our hands; Fong(坊) means a square, a neighborhood to share. This is a platform for us to discover new possibilities and to explore new perspectives in nature and in our everyday life. This is a platform for us to grow with the nature and to give back. This is a platform to weave and transform our experiences into a collection of stories to share with our community.
