Shen Wei Dance

The Chinese-born, NYC-based SHEN WEI is internationally renowned for his cross-cultural, boldly visual movement-based works—the 2008 Beijing Olympics opening ceremonies being among his best known choreographic spectacles. This evening-length program centers on hisRite of Spring, a lushly physical expression of Stravinsky’s great score. “Shen Wei’s Rite reclaims the ambitious, hopeful modern spirit bubbling at the time Stravinsky and Nijinsky created their 1913 original—that is, unembarrassed to think and aspire to more.” (Boston Globe)
