Choreographer: TAO Ye
Dancers: DUAN Ni, WANG Hao, TAO Ye
Producer: Ping Pong Productions
Presenter: Jalent (Beijing) Culture Promotions Co., Ltd.
From 2009-2016, Ping Pong developed and produced all of TAO's international touring and projects, including all tour and production management, as well as for numerous domestic projects and performances. Ping Pong secured all commissioning support from China and abroad for the co-commissioned works 2, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8.
This night of works is composed of three pieces, each of a slightly different form but all of a related style, choreographed over the course of a year. Rather than view this as a performance made up of three pieces, instead we hope the audience will see it as a reflection of our company’s experience this year. When we share our experience with the audience, each audience member will then have their own feelings about what they see, and this in turn will create a new story, one that brings the performance and the audience’s experience together, and thereby creates new meaning.
No specific words can express the meaning of tonight’s performance. Rather, these pieces are permeated with our conceptions of “body” and physical practice. So what your eyes perceive is exactly what our hearts hope to express.
