Details

This Chinese-Canadian exploration of cultural identity is co-created and performed by Wen Wei Dance Artistic Director Wen Wei Wang; Beijing Modern Dance Company Artistic Director Gao Yanjinzi; award-winning classical Chinese musician of Vancouver's Silk Road Music Qiu Xia He; and video and sound artist Sammy Chien. Made In China plunges into their respective artistic expressions to explore the commonalities of their Chinese heritage. Like a collective biography, the show explores memories of the creators' childhoods in China, their artistic training during the Cultural Revolution, and the daring paths their careers have taken abroad. Shared through dance, music, and storytelling, these memories are woven together to create an intimate dialogue between performers and audience that opens a window to another world.

"Wang is a proven maverick of wild imagination. Gao is an iconoclast whose artistic goal is liberation of expression. Together they forge new ground in the dance arts." - The Globe and Mail

Created and performed by Sammy Chien, Qiu Xia He, Gao Yanjinzi, & Wen Wei Wang
