【Description】

Shenzhen is a special city, like a neon mirage floating and glittering in the sky.Swarms of outside strangers float into the city to shape the desires in their dreams, which makes Shenzhen a floating city with floating crowds.Memories are marked here, pulling the places they have been and people they have met.Time draws the outline of memories and let them float wavily on the time track, flow smoothly into [my] body.

From the perspective of conception, the work searches for the innovative and most accurate physical expression, which’s bringing intentional adjectives like floating, arc-connecting, flowing, etc into the real search and creation on body, rolling emotions of home, care, sensibility pull, dream and reality, etc into a series of choreography, to make the whole work interact among the spirits, bodies, visions and other aspects, and to build up a comprehensive and unique outlook.The work is based on the conceptive theme of city, aiming to walk into the public and create a sincere and close emotional exchange.
