The Australian company Strange Fruit will open the celebration with an original performance of a fusion of theatre, dance and circus in an immersive experience open to the five senses.
The impressive 35 metres long stage, designed specially for the occasion by Zhou Jie, will have a scenographic design featuring moving screens, which will show the artistic works created specifically for Suzhou Village.
The visual event created by digital projections of Recipients Collective and by n+n Corsino’s latest choreography will be accompanied by a new piece composed by Hu Zi, a live performance by the Brandt Brauer Frick ensemble, and a live performance by the artist Pierre Giner.
The dancer and performance artist Xiao Ke, in association with the choreographer Alizia Bordari, will present performances and installations in situ.
Yi Ou Lai thereby becomes the producer of original artistic contents that travel around China and the rest of the world.
