Dance of the Bow Magpie

According to East Asian Folklore the Cowherd and the Weaver Girl are forbidden to love and were banished to opposite sides of the heavens. However, once a year, a flock of magpies would form a bridge to reunite the lovers for a single day.


Dance of the Bow Magpie is a solo dance by @quangvienvan, drawing from the natural and mythical world, and featured as part of Encounter Bow 2021.
