from the middle to the future – documentary by Susanne Elgeti


Filmmaker Susanne Elgeti has completed a documentary on the Shanghai New Art Festival that features the maya+rouvelle work “Woven” from 2017 (a collaboration with composer Weilu Ge).

The film was premiered in Shanghai in November 2018.

Susanne conducted interviews with us in Shanghai for the film and kindly provided the audio files. We talk about the ideas behind the project, the instruments, staging, our collaboration, Bu Xi (continually, without a break, ceaselessly) as it relates to our project, East/West cultural forms/relationships, and our experiences in China.
