Movement Aesthetics in Chinese Classical Sword and Water Sleeve – A Performance Conversation with Guest Artists From the Beijing Dance Academy
Part of the Chinese Classical Dance Master Class Residency, Professors Shao Weiqiu (邵未秋) and Zhang Jun (张军) will introduce important aesthetic dimensions of Chinese sword and water sleeve dance and discuss their connections with martial arts and Chinese indigenous theatre (xiqu). The guest artists will provide performance demonstrations using the sword and water sleeve, and audience members will have a chance to try out some of the movements themselves. The event will be introduced and moderated by CCS faculty associate Emily Wilcox, who is currently writing a book about the history and aesthetics of Chinese classical dance.
