Chimerik似不像 just completed the creation process with Wen Wei Dance for the premiere of Ying Yun 英云. Dedicated to Wen Wei’s mother who passed away in 2014 due to ovarian cancer, this work is very special. Wei found ways to craft his work in ways that truly empower women.

Far far away, behind the word mountains, far from the countries Vokalia and Consonantia, there live the blind texts. Separated they live in Bookmarksgrove right at the coast of the Semantics, a large language ocean. A small river named Duden flows by their place and supplies it with the necessary regelialia. It is a paradisematic country, in which roasted parts of sentences fly into your mouth.
