The Chinese-born, NYC-based SHEN WEI is internationally renowned for his cross-cultural, boldly visual movement-based works—the 2008 Beijing Olympics opening ceremonies being among his best known choreographic spectacles. This evening-length program centers around two of his repertory works, Map and Collective Measures.

"His innovative choreographic style is a delight for the audience's eyes, but the patterns, the sequencing, the formations, the musicality, the intensity, the mastery, and yes, even the balloons floating high above elevate the piece's brilliance." (BWWDanceWorld.com)

Admiration for his talent has earned Shen Wei numerous awards, including a MacArthur “Genius” Fellowship (2007), the U.S. Artists Fellow award and a John Simon Guggenheim Fellowship. Other accolades include: Australia’s Helpmann Award; the Nijinsky Emerging Choreographer Award; the World Economic Forum’s Young Global Leader Honor; the Algur H. Meadows Prize; and a 2012 New York City Center Choreography Fellowship. The impact of Shen Wei Dance Arts’ premiere performances on the Chinese mainland in Beijing led to a host of awards for Shen Wei: the Audi-China 2012 Artist of the Year Award; the Artist of the Year at the GQ-China magazine’s 2013 Man of the Year Awards; and most recently, the 2013 Chinese Innovator Award from the Wall Street Journal–China.
