Martial Art in Dance in Shanghai

Date: Jan 19-20 - 7:30 pm

Venue: Shanghai International Dance Center

Price: 80-680 yuan

Choreographer Zhao Liang will premiere his latest creation "Martial Art in Dance", which involves kung fu, during the 19th Shanghai International Arts Festival. Four young contemporary dancers and three martial artists will put on an intense show of saber play, swordplay, cudgel play and tai chi at Shanghai International Dance Center. Zhao says "martial arts" and "dance" in Chinese are phonetically similar, with distinct presentations but the same root. With the theme of "intoxication, exaltation and simplification", Zhao chose a simple stage setting of only black, gray and white for the work. Crossover music with elements such as minimalism, cello and Chinese pipa (Chinese lute) is used to portray the clash between contemporary and traditional features.
