Beauty Beyond Words: Ancient Chinese Dance Classics
Why We Recommend it
This show, featuring colourful and delicate choreographies, is inspired by five thousand years of dance cultures and other art forms from Imperial China, such as poetry and ink paintings.
The Chinese Classical Dance Department of Beijing Dance Academy and the Hong Kong Dance Company join forces to bring ancient murals, etches and more to life through seven intricate dance performances.
Entitled Beauty Beyond Words: Ancient Chinese Dance Classics, the show’s line-up includes illustrative sketches of the oriental landscapes in the solo performance “Watercolour by Fans”, and rhythmic group dances in “Grand Chorus”, an amalgam of ancient music, poetry and dance.
