XiaoKe and ZiHan make collaborative works exploring the body in its extremity of expressions, reflecting on the social and political context of China. XiaoKe was trained as a classical Chinese folk dancer from a very young age and later on develops her own creations in contemporary dance.
ZiHan started as a photographer and has since developed multiple strands of work in the audio visual field of contemporary art in China.
The documentary performance with XiaoKe and ZiHan explores the short history of contemporary dance in China and traces the generation gaps before and after the decade-long Cultural Revolution in China. The performance experiments with the symbolic tendencies of Chinese dance-makers, exploring its limitations and imitations of contemporary dance.
