Fei and Milton Wong Experimental Theatre
SFU Woodwards: Goldcorp Centre for the Arts, 149 West Hastings Street

Two of Canada’s leading voices in contemporary dance and music join forces to create an ambitious new work exploring the intersection between their respective art forms. Wen Wei Dance Artistic Director Wen Wei Wang’s beautifully crafted choreography encompasses both his Chinese heritage and his Canadian identity, drawing on aspects of Tai Chi, martial arts and Peking Opera. The score – by Turning Point Ensemble Artistic Director Owen Underhill and Vancouver composer Dorothy Chang– will be played on Chinese traditional instruments and Western instruments. With guest musicians from Taiwan joining local musicians and dancers on stage, this profoundly intercultural and personal project will reflect the rich and distinctive character of Vancouver.

Duration: TBA

Presented by Turning Point Ensemble, SFU Woodwards, and PuSh International Performing Arts Festival
