Wild Geese

Dance Theatre

In collaboration with Duncan Macfarland (director) and the city of Taiyuan (CH), Mr.Beam created projection art and designs that covered an entire 1.5 hour dance performance by the Taiyuan Dance Troupe. ‘Wild Geese’ is an ancient Chinese tale about passion and loyalty. In order to capture the visual and cultural essence for the designs, we studied various Chinese art forms and adapted our style to align with this magnificent cultural history. It resulted in a mesmerising way of storytelling where projection art and choreography merged together as a ‘live graphic novel’. The show premiered successfully in Beijing and is preparing for future tour dates.
