REXPERIENCE presents “Piying Dream,” an original immersive experience by Danny Rose Studio. Drawing inspiration from the art of Chinese shadow play, now recognized as UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage, it reimagines a radically new Chinese legend. The production weaves together the narrative with over 3,000 digitised shadow puppet artifacts.
The artists of the Danny Rose Collective, drawing inspiration from Mr. Ma Demin’s extensive collection at the Minhang Chinese Shadow Museum, embarked on a creative journey. As the fifth-generation descendant of Ma’s Shadow Puppetry and owner of the world’s largest shadow puppet collection, Mr. Ma’s influence was pivotal in crafting an immersive narrative that vividly showcases the delicate and vibrant universe of Chinese puppetry.
Based in Paris, Danny Rose Studio is a multidisciplinary collective known for creating large-scale digital artworks. Their captivating shows, experienced by over 5 million visitors worldwide, include immersive experiences, interactive installations, and architectural art mapping. Mr. Ma Demin, with over 30 years dedicated to shadow puppetry, has played a crucial role, contributing his expertise and the rich resources of his extensive collection.
