Mor Wen

Mor Wen’s activity oscillates between DJing, live music, performance, and community building, keeping the borders between blurred at all times. She is a resident DJ of Planeta Za.

Being an offspring of Vietnamese migrants, but born and raised in Prague, her life and art are an amalgam of two different cultural backgrounds. Among experiences informing her practice is a participation in physical theatre, intergenerational dance & movement workshops, and teaching Việt children in Prague’s cultural centre of Sapa.

As a DJ and music performer, Mor Wen rhythmically stitches unconventional genres to explore the melancholic and nostalgic state of ‘saudade’. She combines music from the past and future while providing a sound-body-mind connection to the audience.

Together with her brother Xynnh she has created Glory Affairs, a collective aiming to initiate sincere connections between people by employing various techniques from performing and visual arts. Through intimate events they seek the reshaping of stale structures in common cultural events. Moreover, they rethink the setting of a temporary environment, intertwining media to blur visual boundaries and making one feel at home among friends and strangers alike.
