Jennifer Wen Ma – watch the Monkey King dance
In New Adventures of Havoc in Heaven III (2010) Jennifer Wen Ma presented a spectacular animated projection of Sun Wukong, the Monkey King, onto a cloud of smoke above the Sydney Opera House.
The movement of the smoke is choreographed by the graceful movements of a trained performer, while the Monkey King dances overhead in a playful fusion of tradition and technology.
Watch a video of the performance filmed at the Sydney Opera House on Friday, 14 May 2010.
