It is a community that connects musicians and composer-performers who are interested in interdisciplinary performance and Chinese ethnic culture. The core members of it are Dong Zhou and Shiwen Wang, they compose, perform and improvise with different artists for each concert. Their debut was a series of concerts (4 in all) in the whole July of 2017 in Wilheimsburger Inselpark, Hamburg.
