Summer Happenings: The Greater Body (Shi-Dati)
8 p.m. to midnight
Chinese punk, post-punk, ritual performance, film, psychedelia and more come together for a night unlike any other at The Broad.
Post-punk band Re-TROS rocks the East West Bank Stage with special guests, Los Angeles band Xiu Xiu. MIIIA pumps out her rave-inspired beats. Daniel Collás, Juliet Swango and Jie Ma perform Collás’ original score to accompany Zhou Hongbo’s film Lotus Ferry. Asian Dope Boys celebrate the euphoria and psychedelia of Eastern religions, art, music and dance in collaboration with Aïsha Devi, who channels metaphysical research and ritualistic practice into an alternate club environment. Oculus Hall transforms into an underground Beijing punk club with back-to-back sets by FAZI, Hell City and Shave ‘N’ Shut. Meanwhile, Yan Jun presents work incorporating field recording, voice, feedback and his own body in response to the architecture of the museum. Composer Ji Dongyong presents Ban for the 37-reed sheng, performed by Dai Zifan paired with electronics and live digital projections.
Happenings are 21+. Tickets include same-night access to the museum. Yayoi Kusama's Infinity Mirrored Room—The Souls of Millions of Light Years Away will not be open during the event.
Capacity for the various performances are limited and available on a first-come, first-served basis throughout the museum. A Happenings ticket does not guarantee access to all performances.
