During the nearly thirty years of its existence, the Shanghai Dance Theatre has established itself as one of the most successful Chinese dance theatre ensembles. It uniquely combines elements of the traditional Chinese art of movement with inspiration from the vibrancy of this modern era, which is profoundly shaping China’s culture. Sophisticated work with gestures, inspiration from the beauty of the human body, and the poetry of nature are contrasted with danced attacks by courageous warriors and demonstrations of Mongolian, Thai, and Tibetan dances – all of this gives an idea of the colorful palette of experiences that has been prepared for the audience.
