ABOUT THE COLLECTIVE/

 

ZuheNiao

 

The Left Cheek, courtesy by ZuheNiao

ZuheNiao(Niao Collective)was founded in Shanghai, China, in 2005. She iscommitted to making contemporary Chinese theatre international and experimental. The group consists of “New Dance” actors, visual and musical artists, New Media artists, Life Art and other experimental performers, whohave had a pioneering role in creating “Liminal Theatre.” Niao does not want to limit itself to a certain style but creates pieces without set boundaries, sothe result will be different and new each time. In order to realize this, Niao was established as an open collective: the basic line-up is a group of professional and amateur artists from various disciplines, but members are notfixed and different people participate in productions each time. Sinceestablishing itself in Shanghai’s and Beijing’s underground theatres, the grouphas enjoyed a strong following among young people. Its representative works include Tongue’s Memory of Home (2005),Sickroom No. 14 (2006), Left Cheek (2007), Sickroom No. JI (2008), Staywith me Overnight (2009), The Red Chamber(2010), Sickroom QING MING (2011), Dance,Stupid! (2011), and Silent Acapella (2011). At theinvitation by several theatres, ZuheNiao has toured major European and Asiancities such as Berlin, Rome, Paris, Amsterdam, Oslo, Salzburg, Düsseldorf,Zurich, Dublin, Edinburgh, Singapore, Hong Kong and Beijing.
