Site – specific Dance: Body, The Moment.

Site – specific Dance: Body, The Moment.

Site-specific dance performance, which rose out of the dance experiments of postmodern and avant-garde choreographers of the 1960s and 70s, continues to permeate the contemporary dance world. Led by the Artistic Director Willy Tsao, dancers from the Beijing Dance/LDTX will explore the museum through body languages, making the architecture becomes as much a part of the performance as the dancer’s body.
“Sensing the space, will the body refuse or embrace it? Is it a process of critical introspection or a venture to essence and the source?
At this moment, the body moves unrestrictedly. It’s an expression of thoughts as well as a physical vocabulary of emotions.”
