Renowned dancer-choreographer Yang Liping recently collaborated with light painting artist Roy Wang in creating a series of photographs and videos that merge the two art forms.

The project selected snippets from Yang’s representative dance pieces, including The Spirit of Peacock and Moonlight, performed by young dancer Xiao Han, who succeeded Yang as the lead dancer in these pieces.

Chinese light painting artist Roy Wang designed and created light effects for each dance move with hand-held light sources, and shot the processes via long exposure, hence creating photographs in which the dancer is backlit by surreal lights and images.
