The Untermyer Performing Arts Council is presenting DANCE CHINA NY as part of World Fest 2017, our forty-second Summer Season, on Saturday, August 12th at 7:30 p.m. at Untermyer Park.
Performing a vast and dynamic range of Chinese dance and Beijing opera styles, DANCE CHINA NY transports audiences to a world of colorful myths, historical drama, and timeless beauty. DANCE CHINA NY’s repertoire of traditional and contemporary folk and classical dances weaves a vibrant vision of China’s ancient indigenous folk cultures across varied terrains of time and region – legend and reality. They evoke the haunting beauty and melancholy of imperial courtesans, recreate the rousing carnival rhythms of a harvest festival, and conjure up the dramatic beating of drums and clashing of swords on a distant battlefield. Noted for pieces with powerful grace and contained elegance, DANCE CHINA NY performs regularly throughout the United States for audiences of all ages.
The Manhattan-based DANCE CHINA NY, the resident touring company at the New York Chinese Cultural Center, was founded in 1973 in New York City’s Chinatown. DANCE CHINA NY’s dancers include internationally renowned artists from Mainland China, Taiwan and the U.S.
