New York-based dance company founded in 2000 and named after the Chinese-born choreographer and visual artist Shen Wei. His work is devoted to the fusion of dance, theatre, Chinese opera, painting, and sculpture. Shen Wei was a founding member of the Guangdong Modern Dance Company (1991–94) in China before moving to New York City. His repertory includes The Rite of Spring (2003) and Connect Transfer (2005), the latter culminating in the dancers creating a painting by using their limbs to produce brushstrokes on a canvas that covers the stage.
