Description: Born out of a controversial and exciting time of rapid cultural change in China, BeijingDance/LDTX has captured widespread international attention since its founding in 2005 as the country’s first non-governmental and independent professional dance company. Its acronym, LDTX, is short for “Lei Dong Tian Xia,” which translates as “Thunder Rumbles Under Heaven,” a fitting name for this trail-blazing troupe. Under the artistic direction of Willy Tsao, China’s foremost figure in modern dance, and deputy artistic director Li Hanzhong, BeijingDance/LDTX features a dozen technically exquisite dancers as well as a diverse repertoire of cutting-edge choreography from China.
BeijingDance/LDTX’s Scottsdale program will include four works: Standing Before Darkness by Tibetan choreographer Sang Jijia; Treading on Grass, featuring the music of Stravinsky’s Firebird, by choreographers Li Hanzhong and Ma Bo; Waiting Alone by choreographer Xu Yiming; and October, a duet by choreographers Liu Bin and Song Tingting.
Start Time: 20:00
