ABOUT SHEN WEI DANCE ARTS
One of the premier international dance companies, Shen Wei Dance Arts has won worldwide acclaim for “amassing a body of works so strikingly original they defy categorization” (The Boston Globe). The work Shen Wei makes for his Company draws on influences as varied as traditional Chinese culture and arts, European Surrealism, American high modernism, and the ritual power of ancient drama. Transcending East and West, Shen Wei Dance Arts fuses these disparate forms to forge a startling new hybrid form of dance. The Company’s dances reflect the compositional rigor of Shen Wei the visual artist, dancer, and choreographer—incorporating vivid colors, striking design, and imaginative use of space into theatrical, kinetic paintings.
Gibney 280 Broadway is accessible via elevator from the main entrance at 53A Chambers Street.
