Connect Transfer
On from 17 Oct 2007 till 20 Oct 2007
by Shen Wei Dance Arts

About: Connect Transfer

Connect Transfer reveals Shen Wei's fascination with the transfer of energy between one body and another as they encounter each other on stage. Creating striking architectural and sculptural shapes, the dancers interact in an inventive and daring choreography.

As they dance, they paint their own movements onto a giant white canvas, bringing the stage alive with another dimension. The unique painted floor covering reveals the patterns of the dance in a vivid new light, giving visual permanence to the usually fleeting movements. A live accompaniment is performed by renowned pianist Stephen Gosling.

Chinese-born Shen Wei trained as a dancer, choreographer, painter and designer. His company is founded on the fusion of different art forms. Its multi-layered works are a remarkable hybrid of western and eastern influences.

Since it was formed in 2000, the company has toured widely in Europe, Asia and the Americas. Shen Wei was awarded the Monaco Dance Forum's Nijinsky Prize for best emerging choreographer in 2004.

A modern masterpiece. To miss it is to miss an exhilarating work by one of the most expansive, creative minds in the arts.
