Unable to make to the Diversity in Movement concert this year? Then save the date for The Dream Project in December!
The Dream Project features the work of Chun-Jou Tsai and is produced by Penumbra:Exchange . Her solo from the Diversity in Movement will be featured during this performance along with group pieces performed by Wisty Andres, Jorge Delgado, Hsia-Hua Liang, and Brian Washburn. The concept for the concert is a fusion of contemporary modern and traditional Chinese dance that visualizes the calligraphy of a classic Buddhist poem. Ms. Tsai's choreography seamlessly blends improvisational and long sleeves techniques to create imagery that is alternately fluid and sharp.
