[image-1]Yesterday I had the opportunity to sit down with Shen Wei, the Chinese-born choreographer, painter, and filmmaker whose company Shen Wei Dance Arts returns to Charleston this season to perform his acclaimed dance work “Connect Transfer,” in which he and his dancers use their bodies as living paintbrushes, tracing patterns on a canvas floor. Trained in classic Chinese opera from the age of 9, Shen Wei rarely does interviews, and I had just a few minutes with him, but it’s definitely worth a listen.
