Betty Apple (born in 1986, lives in Taipei) is a Taiwanese avant-garde artist. She graduated from the Taipei National University of the Arts Department of Theatre Arts and the Graduate School of New Media Art. Her works are inspired by rave, subculture, avant-garde theatre, new media film, and post-Internet art. She often expressed her creative concept of “body politics” through various identities including that of electronic music artist, sound art performer, live artist, DJ, and rave organizer. She is also the founder of the performance group ArtKB48.
Social Dis Dance was created during the COVID-19 outbreak in 2020 by Betty Apple, Viktor Lin (art director of A COPY OF A COPY), and Hoser Huang (Vacuum Communications Interior Design). Through electronic music (especially industrial techno music), Social Dis Dance has opened a new style of Cyberpunk in Taiwan. Lead singer Betty Apple uses the creative style of sound art to create slices of electronic punk, while Viktor and Hoser create works by transforming the space into an electric sampler. The musical arranging process starts with an impromptu and gradually develops imaginations of the future internet into a sound space.
Dancers and photographers are invited to create whimsical live images. Queer photographer Chien Wen Lin, up-and-coming choreographer Lee Chin-Chieh and Dylan Song, and VJ One Spicy, who is an expert at weaving and image design, as well as several drag queens, are all invited to collaborate in creating the multivariate creative scene.
