SHEN WEI DANCE ARTS @ THE AUDITORIUM

Performance / United States
September 23, 2017 - September 24, 2017
Auditorium Theatre of Roosevelt University
50 E Congress Pkwy, Chicago, IL

Shen Wei Dance Arts makes its Chicago debut with two masterpieces by ACC grantee and MacArthur “Genius” Award-winning choreographer and visual artist Shen Wei, known for his awe-inspiring
choreography for the 2008 Beijing Olympics. Folding conjures up a dreamlike world at once ancient and timeless that draws “gasps of wonder and contemplation”from the audience (San Francisco Chronicle). The groundbreaking Rite of Spring, set to Stravinsky’s famed score, brings the fresh eye of the outsider to this well-known music. “The visual and emotional impact is overwhelming,” says The New York Times.

Shen Wei Dance Arts received several fellowships in support of dance exchanges between the US and China.
