A Chinese equivalent that describes performance art. It is a new term in arts and may be difficult in articulating unless people understand what they are attempting to create. It is however, a flexible concept that focuses on things that make the everyday, common and community things. It is heightened, refined and reflective of how people behave, move or live.

Orphism

Orphism was an abstract style of painting influenced by cubism developed by Sonia and Robert Delaunay. French poet Guillaume Apollinaire created the term around 1912, which distinguishes the work of the Delaunay’s from cubism. Greek musician Orpheus inspired the term.
