Shen Wei Dance Arts 

When: Thu., June 13, 7 p.m. and Fri., June 14, 8 p.m. 2013
Price: $12-52

Perhaps the Triangle's most beloved choreographer, Shen Wei has played out his career thus far with Durham as a backdrop. He'll reprise Near the Terrace, the stunning work that launched his company at the American Dance Festival in 2000, to kick off ADF's 80th season. Inspired by the psychologically fecund tableaux of Paul Delvaux's paintings, the entrancing sexuality of the piece held the audience rapt through its debut. That sense of wonder and anticipation hasn't dissipated over the years, even as Shen has incorporated interests in photography, painting and traditional Chinese opera into his works. This show also features his world premiere of the ADF-commissioned piece Collective Measures. —Chris Vitiello
