Shen Wei Dance Arts
Music By Morton Feldman
Libretto by Samuel Beckett
Conceived and Choreographed by Shen Wei
Celebrated choreographer and painter Shen Wei (Park Avenue Armory, 2011; 2008 Beijing Olympics Opening Ceremony) makes his much-anticipated BAM debut with this danced realization of Morton Feldman’s 1977 anti-opera for orchestra and soprano. With a sphinxlike 16-line libretto by Samuel Beckett, Neither folds 12 dancers into Feldman’s cavernous score, setting Shen Wei’s painterly choreography amid massive moving set pieces and luminous visuals of his own design. Bodies flare, sharply and urgently, then settle together into intricate tableaux, oscillating—like Beckett’s libretto—in the gaps between light and shadow, departure and perpetual return.
