  • Obtained and managed the license of producing the production in Mandarin.
  • Co-produced the production with 2332 Studio in China.
  • Ensured smooth communication between the artists and our partners in Shanghai and Beijing to ensure a smooth rehearsal and performance.

The interactive physical performance 25 Feet is a unique Dutch-Chinese collaboration, created by The100Hands, a renowned dance group from the Netherlands. This compelling performance is co-produced with Shanghai 2332 Studio, featuring local adaptations and the artistic talents of Chinese artists Liao Shuyi and Wu Xiaobo. 25 Feet was previewed at 77 Theatre in Beijing, then staged at the Shanghai International Dance Centre Theatre and supported by the Dutch Performing Arts Fund.

25 Feet is an exploration of the nuances inherent in three types of spaces where the most violent or intimate acts tend to occur: intimate social space, personal space, and private space. Participants are invited to join the artists in a journey through these spaces, exploring the subtle and often unnoticed differences within a range of 25 feet. The performance transcends a mere physical exploration, encouraging attendees to navigate through varying degrees of closeness and density, from distant to intimate, thereby examining the intricate relationship between these spaces and the human body.
