SumCVR09_lgHere’s a recent piece I wrote about acclaimed choreographer, painter, photographer, and artistic director Shen Wei published in Syracuse magazine. Shen Wei, originally from China’s Hunan province, is most famous for choreographing the opening ceremony of the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing.

Below is an excerpt from Shen Wei’s piece, Connect Transfer, which was the inspiration for the opening ceremony of the Olympics. As dancers move accross the stage, they are painting the floor with their bodies.
