New York City
Accomplished in virtually all the visual arts including painting, design, and film making, Shen Wei creates compositions that display a striking richness. In Connect Transfer, this resident company of the Kennedy Center realizes his painterly vision as a literal product of the dance. The audience watches a work of art take shape right before its eyes as 12 dancers perform ?live action painting? applying multiple colors of paint with their bodies onto a trapezoid-shaped white canvas. The changing interactions result in a different creation each evening. Live music is performed by pianist Gloria Cheng and the FLUX Quartet. Note: The calligraphy is best viewed from Parterre, Box, and Tier levels.
