People say that I am the only dancer who does not need a stage. With the sky as curtain and the land as stage, I dance with the highest degree of freedom to express the bond between my body and nature.
I grew up in the city. However, I believe it’s the connection deep inside my body and my veins that drives me eventually to my hometown and where I am from. Slowly I started to enjoy that life, the longer I stay, the stronger the feeling and desire for nature.

Since 2016, I have been traveling widely , due to my work, to Inner Mongolia, Tibet, Yunnan, Sichuan, Qinghai and Gansu. During my travels I got inspired and touched by the beauty of nature. To record those feelings I started to film my improvised dances in the natural landscape, like snow_mountains, rivers, gobi dessert, glacier, and grasslands.
Every time I dance in nature, I feel the wind gently caressing me like sharing a secret with me. The power of nature is always magical and amazing. The chemistry triggered by the combination of my senses freshens my nerves and transports me to a selfless state. I love to be in nature and be a part of it, and this gives me inspiration to create new dance movements. And I also found that the sound of nature are very healing. I feel the mysteriousness of nature when I hear sounds from nature, like bird-singing and water_flowing in rivers.

In my opinion, dance is a medium of the emotions of nature. When I dance in the primordial form I can still feel the emotions of nature, the color of the prairie, the stories of the mountains, and the life of different people. Everything is so simple, boundless, and free. I become a “nomad “ when my soul is set free.
Nomad is probably the best word to describe my present life. I never planned what path I should take, where I should live, or what I should do. We only live once and we should take charge of our own life. My life fell into place as if there was a plan pushing me to the“nomadic”life that I desired. I think that being a nomad means“being unbound”. Choosing to live a nomadic life is to liberate the spirit, especially for those cite-dwellers like me.

Initiator: Qin Ga (Chyanga) Time: June 2020 - June 2021 Site: Anywhere Host organizer: Rhizomic Space Nomadism involves political structures and living mechanisms nomads formed over years in their production and life. Along with the evolution of human history and civilization, this pattern of culture has offered the world a different cultural perspective. With a dynamic structure, it is in an ongoing process of changing or crossing the established boundary. The contemporary aspect of nomadism, in the overwhelming context of globalization, has penetrated our daily life and led to structures with differentiated values, which may help to restructure the world.
To an individual, mobile physical experience and sense-based perception are very important in breaking the conventional cognitive pattern. The contemporary practice in nomadism covers a wide range, from history and culture to nature and life style, in which field, everyone has unique experience and understanding. This art project brings different individual events together to show the possible values of the contemporary nomadic structure. The artists to be invited will choose freely when and where to carry out this “Nomad” project. Any medium is acceptable, including but not limited to painting, sculpture, installation, performance, video, sound, music, dance, etc. The place can be everywhere, no matter it is a prairie, a desert, a mountainous region, a city, or even the cyberspace. “Go Nomadic Together” is intended as an open “nomadic” art experiment and a collection of individual cases as well .
