Performance COMMUNICATION CAPTURES Shanghai Edition
by Stella Geppert / with WEI Man, WEI Qin, ZHENG Lingmin (Coordination: WEI Man) and people from the audience.

In the installation-based performance COMMUNICATION CAPTURESSHANGHAI EDITION, I use breathing as a formative material to “charge the space for heightened awareness.” All performers are equipped with a prosthetic head antenna, to the end of which a piece of charcoal is attached. The goal of these performances is to create a high level of interconnectedness between the communicative connections, both on nonverbal, verbal, physical, and architectural levels. The “axis of breathing” that expands the body also forms the rhythm of the circular movements in the space; casual movements of the head while talking are recorded in the delicate sculpture underneath a sheet of paper.

Information about the performers: WEI Man, WEI Qin, ZHENG Lingmin

WEI Man | 韦曼
Wei Man started professional dance training at the age of 12. For her, the 10-year experience is a process of recognizing instinctive body and self. After graduating from the Minzu University of China with a major of choreography in 2011, her urgent exploration of nature and creativity in dance and education drove her to study contemporary dance education in Germany. This journey opened up and navigated her into a new perspectives on the body which links performance, psychology, and social issues that became a channel to penetrate the essence and reflect the world. Since 2014, she and her partner WANG Jiaming have co-founded the Corbie Rabbit Art Center, focusing on the research of body-based interdisciplinary art education, inviting international artists from theater, sound, architecture, new media and other fields to engage in, hope that through wisdom of body and mind to open up and enrich every life experiences. In addition, she personally keeps interest and passion on innovation, unique and challenging performance, as a maker and performer has been join diverse creation and performance projects such as COLORLESS TASTELESS, III, TIME SKIN since 2010.

WEI Qin | 魏琴
At the age of 6, he began to learn Latin dance. At the age of 12, he entered a dance academy and began to receive professional training. 16 years of dance education and her childhood experience brought her serious psychological trauma, which greatly affected and hindered her psychological and self-growth. Starting in 2021, she decided to rebuild herself, heal her mental and physical wounds, and explore her relationship with the world in which she lived through performing arts.

ZHENG Lingmin | 郑灵敏
He was born in a small town in south of China. In his youth, he often indulged in the virtual world of the Internet. On the way of experiencing self-salvation, he often falls into depression, Self-fantasy, and eagerly searching for the true meaning of life in artistic practice. He explores and thinks through observation of time and space. The ultimate move toward death is his understanding of the world. he regards the body as the main material, from the grand to the inner to express the contradictions of the contemporary individual, the body in the work is abstract and mysterious, to reflect the state of the contemporary environment and his attitude towards future. He is trying to explore the unique viewing experience and promote the development and innovation of his personal dance art. The artist now lives and works in Shanghai.
