China's Contemporary Dance Scene

October 1, 2013
Tuesday 12 noon to 1:00 pm
Room 1636 School of Social Work Building
1080 South University

China’s contemporary dance scene is one of the most dynamic and diverse in the world. Boasting styles as varied as military dances, historical costume dramas, minority dance productions, and modern experimental works, “concert dance” in China is a wide category that must itself be interrogated to begin to gain any understanding of dance in China in the 21st century. In this talk, I introduce major dance works presented in Beijing during the summer of 2013, together with the broader category each work represents, to provide an outline of the basic genres and institutions that currently constitute China’s contemporary dance scene.
