Chinese Gypsy

This is an on-going project about Yan Liping's  modern dance troupe in China,

dance troupe is a very special group inside the society, they live like “Gypsy”,

rehearsal, performance, that covered most of their life,

they live in the dance world and have very little to do with the outside world.


I started my shooting the next day I arrived China,

following their journey from one city to another, capturing their shadows on the stage, their shades when the light is off.


It’s a journey of a group of “Chinese Gypsies”, I also see it as a mirror of Chinese young generation,

their life, their struggle with their dance career, love relations and their future in the rapidly growing Chinese society.
