Fight in Synchronicity – Mountain River Jump!
Time: 8pm~9pm, June 21, June 22
a performance at Chorgasse 5, Zurich
Theater am Neumarkt; in cooperation with Gleis 70; supported by Pro Helvetia
Ox or Cow is a strong metaphor for subconsciousness in Zen Buddhism. Mountain River Jump! is going to reveal the oriental scenarios growing from their mind in the “Fight in Synchronicity” with a section of shadow play. Inspired by the Swiss Hérens Cow Fight in Valais with a hundred years’ history, the twins-artists will incarnate as two cattle-headed beings, combat and sing through a series of behaviors that beyond a linear narrative. To their perception, this cow fight tradition embodies the sentiment towards nature and the existence of the Great Mother Archetype in Jungian theory. An implicative battle with long silent moments refers to integration rather than conflicts, like listening to the force in Tai Chi. In the earlier performances of Mountain River Jump!, they used to incarnate once as a roaring lioness, and two huge puppet-goddesses named Queen Mother of the West in ancient Chinese mythology.
Mountain River Jump! is an artist duo profoundly influenced by Jungian psychology, which was founded by identical twin sisters Huang Shan and Huang He (a.k.a. Yellow Mountain and Yellow River) in 2016. Mountain River Jump! pays attention to the embodiment of mythological clues in a daily context, reflecting on the materialist culture within modern China and its psychological status. Their recent participated projects: do it China 2021, Asia Society Triennial 2020 in New York, Buddhist Youths at Goethe-Institut Beijing in 2019. They are the artists of 2022 Residency Programme, Pro Helvetia Shanghai, Swiss Arts Council.
