 Untermyer Performing Arts Council’s World Fest 2018

Presents

Dance China NY – New York Chinese Cultural Center

7:30 p.m.  Saturday, August 11th 2018 at Historic Untermyer Park

          The Untermyer Performing Arts Council is pleased to present Dance China NY – New York Chinese Cultural Center on Saturday, August 11th, at 7:30 p.m. at Untermyer Park.

The Manhattan-based DANCE CHINA NY, the resident touring company of 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 performance stages and academies throughout mainland China, Taiwan and the U.S. 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. DANCE CHINA NY has toured to hundreds of cities across 23 states, bringing the movements and rhythms of China to communities large and small. Each year, DANCE CHINA NY performs at over 500 events and reaches an audience of over 150,000 people.
