Description

World Premiere: Lincoln Center Festival Concept, Choreography, Costumes, Set Design: Shen Wei Music: Steve Reich Lighting: David Scott Bolman In Map, Shen Wei explores the concepts of rotation, bouncing, internal isolation, internal circular movement, and internal individual movement. Rotation and circular techniques have been introduced in Shen Wei's Rite of Spring and Connect Transfer, respectively, and they are further developed in Map. Map is set to The Desert Music by Steve Reich, consisting of five sections organized in a symmetrical form: ABCBA. Shen Wei divided Map into five separate sections with a similar symmetric pattern. In Shen Wei's choreography, the elements from the "Rotation Map" (first movement) return in the fifth movement, "The Map," in a flourishing and expanded form of whirlwind-like energy.
