Santa Barbara Debut
From New York City
Shen Wei, Artistic Director

“Shen Wei’s singular imagination and brilliant stagecraft brings us to strange and wondrous places.” The Washington Post

“Delicious, delightful to the senses, and spirit-lifting.” Dance Magazine

Hailed as “startlingly imaginative” by The New York Times, Shen Wei Dance Arts is devoted to the creation of innovative dance forms for the 21st century. A seamless fusion of Chinese opera, painting, dance and music with Western performance arts, Shen Wei’s works are “visual feasts” (The New York Sun) that transfix audiences. The program will feature the restaging of two of Shen Wei’s most celebrated works. Rite of Spring is set to Stravinsky’s music and coincides with the 100th anniversary of the original landmark piece. Folding is a highly stylized movement exploration played out over the ethereal melodies of Tavener and Tibetan Buddhist chants.
