The Kennedy Center hosts a very special site-specific performance from New York's Shen Wei Dance Arts. The modern dance company is led by Chinese-American choreographer Shen Wei, best known for choreographing the 2008 Beijing Olympic Opening Ceremony. His works blend Asian and Western influences, and are known for their commitment to creating striking images. This performance is called Undivided Divided
and features the dancers of the company interacting with multimedia, including video and sculpture. When it premiered in 2011, this piece heralded a bold new direction for the company. Audience members are invited to stroll among moving "displays" of painted dancers, projected videos, and sculptural installations. Set to an original score by So Percussion and concrete sound design by Lawson White, this multimedia work envelops the audience with its spatial design and multi-track sound, creating an exciting and immersive interaction between audience and performer.
