Neither - Shen Wei by Stephanie Berger
Production Details

Chinese-born choreographer and MacArthur Fellow Shen Wei has won worldwide acclaim for amassing a body of works so strikingly original they defy categorization. Transcending East and West, Shen Wei’s dances draw on influences as varied as traditional Chinese arts, American high modernism, and Western contemporary dance.  With a peerless eye for beauty, his works incorporate elegant design and imaginative use of space to create stunning kinetic stagescapes.

The company will give the west coast premiere of Neither, a new evening-​length choreographic work set to Morton Feldman’s opera of the same name, with libretto by Samuel Beckett.
