Chopinot began to dance at the age of 5, and after 66 years of experience as a dancer and choreographer, she sees herself at "a crossroads of cultures and ideas", with her mission as an artist being to build new connections among people, and with the world and nature.

"All living beings need beauty," she says.

While the brain is recognized as the organ for thinking, Chopinot says she believes the abdomen is important for intuitive feeling.

Choreographers have to learn to understand and think with their abdomen and their skin, and take in the world like animals and plants.

"Creations of female artists possess unlimited potential that transcends time, culture and generations. We are deeply grateful and proud that Women in Motion at West Bund is making leaps in achievements in this second edition focused on female choreography," Cai Jinqing, president of Kering Greater China, says.

"In the future, we will continue to focus on in-depth cooperation across national and cultural boundaries, making the museum a destination that inspires creativity, artistic collision and dialogues," Chen Anda, executive director of the West Bund Museum, says.
