Shen Wei Dance Arts: Folding and Rite of Spring
March 2, 2018 @ 8:00 pm - March 3, 2018 @ 10:00 pm$65
Making their Western Canadian premiere, Vancouver International Dance Festival (VIDF) proudly presents the internationally acclaimed, New York-based contemporary dance company Shen Wei Dance Arts on March 2-3, 2018 at 8pm at the Vancouver Playhouse.
Widely celebrated for their mesmerizing movement, striking beauty, and elegant expression, Shen Wei Dance Arts will leave an indelible impression with their two dazzling offerings from Artistic Director and Choreographer Shen Wei. Folding, an otherworldly dreamscape set to Tibetan Buddhist chanting melded with the ethereal melodies of John Tavener, is a work of captivating simplicity and control that showcases Shen Wei’s genius. Rite of Spring is a compelling abstract interpretation of a 4-hand piano version of Stravinsky’s iconic score, creating a fascinating physical calligraphy. The dancers spiral and swirl across the stage with an exuberance and lyricism that celebrates the dancers’ athleticism and exhilarating artistry.
VIDF runs March 1-24, 2018. Festival tickets and event details available at vidf.ca or by calling 604.662.4966.
