Nationwide premiere | The first production of YOUNG Theater
Audio and Painting Experimental Theater <Fleurs sauvages de Lyon>
Talented folk musician
Palm Springs Best Animated Short Film Award Director
“No matter where, spring will come as scheduled.”
Fleurs sauvages de Lyon is an interactive performance combining live improvised music and experimental images, which is completed based on real individual experience and records. The work tells how individuals, facing the "turbulence" and "uncertainty" of the external world and daily life during the epidemic, can gradually break the mental block and reconnect with others and the world around them by taking the small things in life as anchor points.
The image part created by independent animation image artist Ma Weijia is composed of live video, artist's paintings and physical freeze frame animation, words and spoken words. Musician Xiao He designed and composed music according to video paragraphs. Different from the previous form of music for video works, in Fleurs sauvages de Lyon, although the video was created first, the music will be performed immediately on the scene according to the mood and rhythm of the video. The two cooperate with each other and have their own independence at the same time.
At the beginning of 2020, the COVID-19 began to spread around the world. I was making animation in France and stayed in Lyon for two months. In two months, Lyon entered spring from winter. At that time, the French policy required that individuals must fill out and carry travel application forms when going out. When I went out during my stay, I would pick up several wild flowers at the roadside each time and draw on the invalid application forms when I returned to my residence. A total of 16 trips were made, 16 travel sheets were drawn and 16 wild flowers were collected.
In retrospect, these traces of life are like a metaphor, standing in the current of the times and witnessing the turning of the world. I went back to Shanghai, but the travel list and wild flowers left by the airline in France finally came back to me after many setbacks. It was a plain and beautiful book, telling that no matter where it was, spring would come as scheduled. For the spring, Xiaohe and I hope to present a special performance to the audience - The Wild Flowers of Lyon.
On this stage, I hope you can experience the process of space from closing to opening with us, observe the insignificant things that can light up, and feel the desire for contact and communication between people. "
