The event creator says

The nu.shui team is very sorry to announce that due to University Policy, which expressly forbids students from being in the Littlefield or in any University fountain, the nu.shui creative team has decided to withdraw the piece from the Cohen New Works Festival.

The New Works Festival attempted to discover a way in which an exception to the prohibition might be found. As such a path was not possible, the nu.shui creative team spent considerable time thinking about alternative venues and creative solutions. In the end, it was decided that a change of venue apart from the fountain would move the piece too far from its ideal impulse and execution.

If you want to be updated about nu.shui's progress in finding another way to perform their piece and to be invited to any possible performance, please contact Jun Shen at

We appreciate your enthusiasm and support! Please stay tuned for future projects!


Part of the Cohen New Works Festival 2015


nu.shui is a site-specific dance piece that will take place in the Littlefield Fountain. Set to Ravel’s rich and unwavering magnum opus, Bolero, nu.shui explores the powerful relationship between women and water. Water’s clarity and forcefulness are analogous to women’s ascribed qualities of grace and vitality. Movement is inspired in part by the Chinese poem “Jianjia,” wherein a man pursues an elusive woman – a mirage over a pool of water.

The Cohen New Works Festival presented by Broadway Bank exists as an incubator for innovative and original work of a variety of mediums. It provides a nurturing environment and practical resources for the creation, development, production, and discussion of new and interdisciplinary work by students, faculty, guest artists, and scholars who come together in the spirit of collaboration and critical inquiry.

nu.shui would also like to thank the UT Chinese Students and Scholars Association for their generous support.
