Shen Wei

What I saw last night. Shen Wei at Prospect Park Bandshell. IMG_4458For the first piece the dancers were all on the ground with balloons over them. IMG_4459This is not optimal for outdoor shows where the stage is higher than the audience. Eventually they release the balloons and rise up to swirl about often in unison. IMG_4460The second piece was a solo in which a woman dances inside a square frame on the ground. Every time she touches the floor she comes up with paint on her body. At the end the square is lifted and we can see the abstract art she has created.

Elements: paint, canvas, hot air balloons
Titles:“Map” “Collective Measures”
