Hong Kong Dance Company X Beijing Dance Academy

Traditional artistry that transcends dynastic cycles

 

With the benefits of half a century of legacies and finesse, the Chinese Classical Dance Department of Beijing Dance Academy finds creative muse in more than five thousand years of dance cultures and cultural wisdom from Imperial China. Marking their second collaboration with the Company, the piece showcases brush strokes of Dunhuang’s grandiose landscape in “Fyling High in the Sky”, followed by illustrative sketches of the oriental landscapes in “Fans and Painting”, and “A Lonely Crane in Ink Wash”, an artistic expression of lofty ideals through depiction of earthly objects. The series then take a lively turn upon the heroic “The King of the Qin State”, which transitions into a festive gala of Chinese nobilities in “Duke Xie’s Shoes”, and rhythmic group dances in “Grand Chorus” and “Spring Excursion”.
