Shen Wei: Expressions in Dance, Art and Film with Shen Wei Dance Arts

Special Event / United States
March 27, 2018
Asia Society
725 Park Avenue
New York, NY 10021

Shen Wei, the acclaimed choreographer, painter, and founder of Shen Wei Dance Arts, reveals his artistic inspirations and working processes as a multi-media artist in a far-reaching dialogue on Buddhism, childhood memories, explorations of dreamscapes, and his journeys to Tibet with YiLing Mao, Executive Director of Art Collectives LLC. For this illuminating evening, Shen Wei's dance Company will perform some of his most iconic pieces including FoldingRe-Part II, and Neither. Selections of his paintings will be discussed in depth alongside a World Premiere screening of his recent short film, Innerspace, a poetic exploration of how we navigate space, untethered from nature in our vast modern constructs–set in and around one of China’s striking new works of architecture. The evening celebrates Shen Wei and his artistic vision upon the third decade of his active engagement in the arts on the world stage.
