Tang Dixin (Shanghai)


On Day 1, Tang Dixin used physical divergence between the act of ‘walking’ and ‘climbing’ among the audience as an imaginative interval to defy social norms; his actions suggested retreat to a subdued expression of disobedience. He demonstrated a similar performance of striking physical divergence with book throwing and balancing on day 2.
