Event Details

Join CHSA for a special evening of experiential performance art combined with history and culture.

Artist Xinye Lin explores the relationship between art, rhythm, and philosophy, utilizing all the senses in an active and interactive manner. In this site-specific performance, Lin plays the guzheng, a Chinese zither, working with the CHSA archival collection of historic opera recordings and translating these to digital files as source material to mine and experiment with. What results is an immersive audio video experience combining stunning multi-channel visual projection art, entrancing vocalizations and both live and recorded Classical Chinese music.

This performance aims to heal the mind, spirit and soul, not constrained to static projections of imagery. Rather inputs are tied to different human and environmental factors. Such factors include motion, emotion, scent, sound and mood.

Join CHSA for an evening of drinks, food, music, dance, and discovery.
