from the middle to the future – a film by Susanne Elgeti

*European Premiere in September 2019 at the Kontakte Festival in Berlin*


Filmmaker Susanne Elgeti has completed a documentary on the Shanghai New Art Festival that features our work “Woven” from 2017 (a collaboration with composer Weilu Ge).

Susanne conducted interviews with us in Shanghai for the film and kindly provided the audio files. We talk about the ideas behind the project, the instruments, staging, our collaboration, Bu Xi (continually, without a break, ceaselessly) as it relates to our project, East/West cultural forms/relationships, and our experiences in China.
