SHEN WEI DANCE ARTS: BOLDLY VISUAL CONTEMPORARY DANCE
A COLLABORATIVE PRESENTATION FROM
JACOB'S PILLOW DANCE AND MASS MOCA, OCTOBER 26 & 27
September 4, 2013 - (North Adams, MA) Jacob's Pillow Dance and MASS MoCA co-present inventive, contemporary ensemble Shen Wei Dance Arts on October 26 and 27 at MASS MoCA's Hunter Center for the Performing Arts. Led by Chinese-born American choreographer Shen Wei, the New York-based dance company blends his signature movement vocabulary with elements of film, theater, new media, and visual art. The program includes Shen Wei's interpretation of Rite of Spring (2003), in honor of the original production's 100th year, and striking new work Collective Measures (2013). The company's performances coincide with the final weekend of MASS MoCA's Xu Bing: Phoenix exhibit, an installation featuring two monumental birds fabricated wholly from materials reaped from construction sites in urban China.
