  • Introduction

    Fête de la Musique

    Duration: 20min
    Performer: Qi Dance (Dance: Marceau Chenault, Poetry: Horacio Hortiz, Flute: Li Rui, Erhu: Pan Xiao Li, Drawing: Xuan Ying)

    In the spirit of the Rockbund Art Museum exhibition Advance through Retreat, the Qi Dance Project presents a live performance - Silent Hands - to explore the intimacy between the silence of spiritual reflection and the performativity of body, sounds and words. The dancer, the musicians, the poet and the painter introduce a dialogue with the other works of art in the space of the museum, evoking the symbols of social order (Arc de Triomphe–for personnal use of Jimmie Durhan), memory and institution (Thinking of You by Jimmie Durhan), evanescence and circulation (Another Kind of Aesthetics from Yangjiang Group). In the space between stillness and action, expansion and retraction, memory and oblivion, indolence and desire, they explore the contemporary constitutions of autonomy and movement.

  • About Qi Dance Project

    Qi Dance Project is a transdisciplinary research collective focused on global mind-body cultures, funded in 2010, in Shanghai. In collaboration with dancers, mind-body technics experts, musicians, poets and visual artists, Qi Dance Project is seeking for an holistic perception of the human being through movement, sound, words and image. The main actions of this project are the development of new methods for mind-body education, site-specific live artistic performances, and activities for social wellness (adapted training for disabled children, older people, and corporate teams).
