When Shen Wei decided to present a season at the Judson Memorial Church, today, April 29-May 4, he faced a problem. This famed lover of the grand scale would not be able to hang his set for 'Map' performances, well, not if he wanted his audience seated on all four sides. However, Shen Wei Dance Arts' season, which also features the world premiere of a solo for the choreographer, shows that when there's a will, Shen Wei finds a way. (more...)
