8th Annual Vancouver Spring Show 春绽


The Vancouver Spring Show is a epic yearly event produced by Vancouver’s local Chinese dance community. This year we got to work the director Lin, Chen 林辰, a Beijing based Chinese Choreographer who’s work was part of Beijing Olympic 2008.

When East meets West, contemporary meets traditional. An incredible show using China’s traditional 24 solar terms as a framework to present a night full of art and culture: Chinese poetry, historical costumes, indigenous instruments, and much more. Performed by talented artists from around the world, who deliver this amazing experience.

Producer: Cherry Tao & Shaun Cui

Director: Lin Chen

Set Designer: Wang Qi

Lighting Design: Mark Eugester

Live Visuals & Projection Design: Shang-Han Chien & Sammy Chien (Chimerik 似不像)

We just completed a big show at Queen Elizabeth Theatre in Vancouver (after Ballet BC, another big show!) this time, we got to project on 12 different types of configuration of stage design/projection surface, got to do holographic projection on such huge stage, got to work with one of the director from Beijing Olympic 2008, and super big shot stage designer, too. wow.. thanks to the organizers of the Springshow, loved the producer, how much work they’re putting into it. big thanks to Dong Mei for connecting the dots. We designed projection/media arts for over 20 pieces, both live, fixed and generative visuals, from commercial/mainstream to new media/real-time/experimental style, from traditional Chinese music to contemporary dance to even breakdance with dubstep… Amen. 剛做完又一個大場的表演, 接著BalletBC之後又再度在伊麗莎白女王劇院製作表演。 這次,我們有機會設計投影在12多種不同的舞台布幕設定上,製作了大型的浮空投影, 有機會跟北京2008奧運的導演之一還有超厲害的舞美以及一些不得了的團隊合作,感謝冬梅的介紹,感謝製作人Shaun那麼費心的投入這麼多心力跟資源在這個表演上,謝謝主辦單位還有為了呈現出好表演一起賣命的大夥們。 我們Chimerik 似不像很榮幸能接受這麼大的挑戰,一次製作超過20多個表演段落,從後製,VJ,到即時互動,從主流到實驗,從傳統中國文化到當代表演藝術。真的不簡單。 Vancouver Spring Show #vancouverspringshow #queenelizabeththeatre #vancouver #performance #chimerik #beijing #olympics #creativeteam #2017 #projection #design #MediaArts #contemporary #dance #theatre #VJ #interactive #media #hologram #chimerik似不像 #似不像 #chimerikcollective #newmedia #interdisciplinary #performance #art
