About the Performance:

Tutu choreographed as a purely physical dance work, developed from its unique dance language and principles of movement itself. It deconstructs the way the body moves, such as using release techniques and four-dimensional special recognition to continually explore and investigate how physical movement is influenced by time and space.

As the top recommendation for 2014 Russia-China Year of Cultural Exchange, Tu Tu was the opening show at Open Look Arts Festival in St. Petersburg. Having performed in various cities such as New York, Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Changchun, Nanjing, Tu Tu has created an intriguing mix of western physical movement techniques and eastern philosophical spirit. This intense performance utterly challenges the existing conception of Chinese contemporary dance.
