A double bill programme, Beyond Calligraphy highlights the exquisite grace and physicality of 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.
Described as a ‘poem of movements’, Upon Calligraphy comprises five dances named after the five different script styles in Chinese calligraphy.
“… full of meditative grace, sharp, cut-crystal physicality and languid dignity” – Washington Post
Ink Wash Landscape is a commentary on the cold, emotionless mode of communication in the digital era, which is resolved in balance and harmony between the water and ink.
