Hong Kong Dance Company X Beijing Dance Academy
Rediscovering the arts and cultures of Imperial China
Following its sold-out repertoire in 2016, the Classical Dance Department of Beijing Dance Academy joins hands with the Company to present its beloved Dream of the Past: Ancient Chinese Court Dances, which takes you back to the ancient world of emperors, concubines and warriors, citing archaeological references to their music, etiquette, costume and literature. Opening with ancient beauties enjoying themselves along the delta region, “Spring Excursion” is followed by “Small Victory Dance”, a dance choreographed by Emperor Xuanzong for his beloved Consort Yang Yuhuan. Epitomising the Chinese perception of beauty, “Chu-style Waist Dancing” explores dance styles predating the Qin dynasty before fast-forwarding to the Han dynasty by presenting four experts from the dance drama Dancing Girl of the Bronze Sparrow Pavilion.
