Flow(er) Dong Mei and Sammy Chien
The work seeks to bridge the gap that exists between traditional and contemporary forms of art making by integrating digital technologies and street dance with Chinese traditional folk dance from the disappearing tribe Uyghur in the Xinjiang province of China and Qi Gong, a traditional Taoist practice connecting with the energy of our body to shift its movement and flow.
