Guangdong Modern Dance Company.

“One of the big success stories of international dance… a pacesetter with a difference.” - The New York Times

A double-bill programme performed one night only and exclusive to Christchurch Arts Festival, 'Beyond Calligraphy' highlights the exquisite grace and physicality of China’s Guangdong Modern Dance Company.

The award-winning work begins with Upon Calligraphy, developed from the stylistic essence of Chinese script styles; while Ink Wash Landscape pays homage to the spiritual essence of ink wash painting and reflects on the cold, emotionless mode of communication in the digital era, which is resolved in balance and harmony between the water and ink.

“…full of meditative grace, sharp, cut-crystal physicality and languid dignity.” - Washington Post

Choreographer: Liu Qi
Composer: Li Chin Sung

Sponsored by: China Southern Airlines
