XingQi · Consciousness is a multimedia and site-specific dance film combining classical aesthetics and contemporary media techniques. The choreography, playwright and composition are based on the historical research of the imperial kiln factory, the unearthed ceramic gene bank and blue-and-white porcelain craftsmanship, as well as the performance space of the imperial kiln museum and the cultural relic site. Through the dialogue between body language, projection mapping and camera movement, the performance connects the material, space, media art and spirit, interpreting the imperial kiln aesthetics of the broken and eternal, and the spirit of tenacious, distant and romantic.

XingQi Series are created during the Jingdezhen Imperial Kiln Museum Art Residency, featured at “Imperial Kiln Universe, Mysterial of Blue and White” Special Exhibition, 2022 IRCAM FORUM at NYU, 2022 Hangzhou Binjiang International Dance Festival, and the Permanent Collection of the Imperial Kiln Museum.
