Dance Theater: Catfish Effect

Finished Ended on Sat Jul 24, 2021 , 7:30pm
Shanghai International Dance Center
1650 Hongqiao Lu, near Shuicheng Lu


Commissioned by Shanghai International Dance Center Theater, “Catfish Effect” is the brainchild of director and choreographer Xinyun Zhu, who wanted to make a play-within-a-play in the style of the Truman Show. It combines a whodunnit situation acted out by real-life friends; Swedish composition; and a live performance of morin khuur, a Mongolian fiddle. In “Catfish Effect,” dancers reshape their ideas about self-identity and rethink their relationships with fellow performers. Two performances only on July 23 and 24. Show begins at 7.30pm, doors open at 6.30pm; performance is 1 hour long.
