Min’s residency project focuses on the nowadays impacts - multi-culture, globalization, and internet explanation. It seems as if contemporary culture cares less and less about inner beauty, and more about the appearance. Through his work Min would like to encourage facing the reality before it’s too late.
The project‘s presentation will happen on October 30th in Derida Dance Center.

Also, as the other residency artists, Min Li will share his experience in a one-week workshop with the participants in Dance PORT Derida 2015 – the education and training program created and run by Derida Dance Center and supported by America for Bulgaria Foundation.

Derida Dance Center Residency Program 2015 is supported by Sofia Municipality.
