Shades of Change was produced by the Shandong Academy of Arts and the Shandong Provincial Theatre Creation Studio. Performance Infinity worked closely to the creative team in recommending international artists visiting China for the collaboration and presenting the piece locally in China as well as Slovakia and Hungary.
Shades of Change is inspired by the Chinese traditional culture “I Ching” which try to lead the viewer to change the perspective of the world and the humanities. It is using the third person interpretation of the bird as a creative idea, using the theories in “I Ching” to express the colour and change of the five elements, thus triggering different thinking of the present people treating tradition, treating nature, and treating life. The bird is both a realistic bird and a bird of thought, leading the audience to appreciate and find the beauty that the reality should have.
