It is the first time for Shen Wei to present his total-art work in mainland China and also being the first time for him to select the domestic ensemble cast ever since his choreography work Scroll Painting at the opening ceremony of 2008 Beijing Olympics.
Shen Wei started his research and practice in the field of multimedia from as early as the 1990s. In his perspective, his development of the “Natural Body Development Technique” (NBDT) has relevance across disciplines with visual painting, live-action installation, performing arts and textual thoughts.
As he explains: "INTEGRATE is a future-oriented work and it aims at exploring new art forms. It’s about the spiritual introspection for people living in the current epidemic time. We rebuild differently but with a same goal；Though we are in a divided space, we are synchronized in ideas；We are individual but we rebuild together."
