Purple Star Art and Communications Co., Ltd.
SDF is the first ever independent festival in China. Originally initiated by Jin Xing it was Purple Star Art & Communication Co. Ltd Shanghai that organized this cultural highlight for the first time in March 2006. The founder and artistic director Jin Xing is well known in China and abroad for her artistic achievements in contemporary dance. Her vision is to further develop the cultural scene in China by reinforcing the exchange with other cultures and creating a sense of appreciation for the strong cultural tradition in China.
SDF is an important step to follow this vision. The festival’s mission is to present high class performing groups from different countries and thus open the Chinese audience’s mind to discover the richness of other cultures. At the same time the festival fosters the exchange between international and Chinese performing artists with performances and workshops.
