Inspiration: Wang Jianlin is partly based on his own life experience.
In 1986, at the age of 21, he came to Vancouver for cultural exchange and reached the highest level of Chinese dance.
His experience with several top dance companies in Canada led to the establishment of Wenwei dance in 2003.
Connections: \"It\'s a bit from my life experience, but politics is now dealing with a lot of issues like refugees and immigrants.
Most of the five dancers come from different countries and backgrounds, one from Iran and the other from Italy.
Here is about acceptance and tolerance.
\"Action: the day and night of the character, the bar environment, and the sequence of battles in which a person is labeled a terrorist have changed many times.

Duration: about 26 minutes for 7 parts.
Music: tracks of various video games.
Genesis: \"Three years ago, when the Alberta Ballet approached me, I started picking music from video games and looking at them, and I realized how they reflected our lives and what happened next, where will we go, where will the future be.
It\'s a whole new world for me.
\"Concept: Wang\'s martial arts experience incorporates this concept because war is a theme in video games.
Look: design with Asian style clothing and make-up, no pointed shoes.
Connections: \"I have some ideas about Star Wars in terms of costume ideas.
\"Working hours: a month of music and dance moves, plus four weeks of working with dancers.

At the end of the day, they just walked in these patterns and I don\'t know how I did it, but it\'s still fresh after three years.

Music: The clash between Italian composer Ezio Boso and Ludovico ayinaudi in minimalist aesthetics.
Genesis: Anderson ordered the first commission from scratch last year without any suggested topics.
Source of inspiration: \"I called together the dancers I was best at working with to see how they came together,\" Anderson said . \".
\"After studying Sleeping Beauty, I wanted to address the challenges that dancers face and how you try to fit in.
So how the struggle in life is beautiful and artistic is a dark stream.
More than any piece I do, the direction is driven by dancers.

\"Visual effects: Oscar\'s projected animation

Effect: Grand said: \"It\'s based on the beginning of life, the beginning of Thought and Mathematics, and the visual effects around the dancers, just like they swim in the aquarium . \"Maitre.
\"It\'s like a ritual, based on very deep themes, unlike anything I could have done before.
