YINZI Young Director Residency Plan short term

(dance、physical、music、performance、video etc.)

Let's work with the independent musicians, independent dancers and easel artists based in the southwest of China! We hope to stimulate each other's unknown possibilities and freshness through the coproduction, so as to promote a new round of mutual inspiration!

With the support of the YINZI 3C center, we will be better able to help artists to produce their work effectively and most importantly to develop (international) impact.

The team at YINZI 3C center uses their expertise to participate in the production process, advising and organizing artists, providing them with application and advice, financial and prospect planning support.

In addition, YINZI 3C center can arrange for the work to tour in China and abroad.

    Creative Brief : The resXidency will feature Doris Magico, who invites François Bovy to walk through the city together on a daily basis, collecting ideas and landscapes to understand people's daily perspectives. We'll be treated to a series of vivid images - a poetic gaze toward this timeless megalopolis. On that basis, the challenge will be to reflect on how humans, cities and nature can coexist from an artistic perspective in this disproportionate landscape!
