Mixing Realities: Digital Media Creativity from China

Dr Daming Zhang explores artistic possibilities of XR (AR/VR/MR) from a theatrical perspective.

Daming’s first VR project, the 360 degrees dance film, Or Bit, was the Official Selection of the 38th International Festival of Films on Art (Canada), the 17th Cinedans Festival (Netherlands), the 9th Hangzhou International Theatre Festival (China) and was shown by Digital Catapult (UK) as a private viewing in February 2020 and by the Center for China Shanghai International Arts Festival as part of the “#Dance Right Here” exhibition in January 2021.

Daming has extensive experience as a director, visual designer and stage designer in both artistic and commercial activities. She initiated experimental performing arts projects such as “ReActor” and “Skin Tight” during her time at the Power Station of Art (Shanghai Biennale).
