Song of the Phoenix

Experience the majestic thunder of the martial arts and the mysterious whisper of poetry through the global language of dance.  "Song of the Phoenix" is a new program from acclaimed choreographer Nai-Ni Chen that brings the audiences on a flight through space and time to a place where tradition meets innovation and freedom arises from discipline.

The phoenix is known in both eastern and western cultures as an awe-inspiring creature of death-defying strength and majesty.  For the West it symbolizes renewal and for the East, the power and mystery of the feminine.  “Song of the Phoenix” features original and unique choreography by Nai-Ni Chen, whose repertoire seamlessly blends ancient rituals and modern concepts. Through the global language of dance, Nai-Ni Chen transforms the stage into a place where tradition meets innovation and freedom arises from discipline.   Engaging the audience with the majestic thunder of Martial Arts and the rhythm of poetry, dancers glide across the stage with color, intensity and a whisper of Chinese tradition.
