“Swiss Window in Asia” is a series of performance art events supported by Pro Helvetia Shanghai and takes tour from Shanghai to Beijing, Hong Kong and Macao from March 17-27, 2016, presenting to the viewers five talented Swiss performers whose works range from performance, theater, dance, to visual arts. As topic initiators, active on the international stage, were relatively not well-known in China. The series concluded with 83 shows (including one-to-one shows) and 1500 audiences, and have fueled heated discussion and brought wide attention.

As a follow-up of this well-acclaimed series Marie-Caroline sHominal returned to China with her dance and musical performance “Silver”, to tour from Shanghai Drama Arts Centre, to Wuhan and Chonqing from Nov.25-Dec.3, 2016.
