Director: Xinge Li and Ginny Jiang
Synopsis: Tides is an exploration of torso, inner points and space.Ginny Jiang takes the physical mechanism of the body and the variability of space at the historical level as her motivated point, presenting the mysterious, oriental spatial exploration and repressed personal emotions in this film with a nomadic structure. Xinge Li establishes an emotional connection between the body and space, between the micro body and macro body, private space and public space, the self and the other, and extends the temporality of folded space and the contradiction and integration of the individual and nature with dance images. This work combines sound, text, and props, and contains narrative structural choreography, site-specific improvisation, and the director’s individual experience.
