Location: Fleck Dance Theatre (207 Queens Quay West) - Toronto
TAO Dance Theater presents two incisive works by China’s emerging leaders of contemporary dance that shatter expectations. Weight x3 is a triptych of pieces concerned with stretching the boundaries of physical practice. In 2, the dancers’ bodies fold, collapse, invert and mirror each other to convey the movement (and rigidity) of language.
Since its inception in 2008, TAO Dance Theater has established itself as one of the most interesting contemporary dance companies in China.
The troupe has presented its work in several festivals in China and Europe, and has also collaborated with leading artists in the genres of theatre, experimental music, cinema, visual arts and installation art in China. The company’s artistic director, Tao Ye, is moving away from naturalist and figurative trends into a formal dance form.
