During the Shang Dynasty, it was dancing shamans who presided over divination rituals in which oracle bones were cracked in order to commune with the ancestors. Later, dancers also inspired drunken T’ang Dynasty monks to abandon the formalism of their age, seek freedom of expression and perform through calligraphy. The Mountain River Project is an extension of that connection: a work of modern calligraphy-making and its reflection in movement.
