Belle Chen is one of the most uncategorisable artists of her generation, traversing the realms of classical, avant-garde, electronica, world, and sound art.
‘Destinations’ is Chen’s new audiovisual show, created in collaboration with designer Nick Robertson (Coldplay, Brian Eno), realtime visual performer, Mario Radev (nominee Grand Jury Prize – Sundance Film Festival), and lighting designer, Marty Langthorne (Sadler’s Wells, Dickie Beau).
Inspired by nature and the process of desertification, glacier melt, wild fire, and coral bleaching, the stage transforms into an all-encompassing environment through live-visuals, as the pianist live-paints a journey through shifting environments around the world: from the Gobi Desert to the Great Barrier Reef.
Destinations is commissioned by Chinese Arts Now.
