Three Episodes - Between Body and Soul is a work divided in three parts, each choreographed by an ex-dancer from the Guangdong Modern Dance Company. Each choreographer is now internationally renowned for his / her own right. In this program, they came together to explore a theme that speaks a dialogue between the body (physicality / environment) and the soul (thought / contemplation).
XING Liang, one of the most celebrated dancers of our time, draws on his intensive experience in the physical art form and creates an expressive and exhilarating piece of work: Touched. The work exemplifies the purity of the body movement, which, when pushed to extreme, touches upon many emotional aspect of our lives.
Beidao, the Chinese poet, is acclaimed for his transcending insight into the intricate relations between the human and the nature. Inspired by Beidao's poem, GMDC's resident choreographer LIU Qi creates Voice After depicting the tranquility of the ocean waves, the flocks of gulls, and the storm surge underneath.
In the Illustration Book of Tai Chi, ZHOUDunyi, the famous scholar from the Song Dynasty exclaimed that "The Yin and the Yang match and deliver the multiplicity of the many life forms, and the life forms then progress forever." Choreographer MAShouze acknowledges this insightful thought by creating Beings.
