Nai-Ni Chen Dance Company in PAE Showcse, Baltimore

Sept 28th, 2006 9:20PM
The world renowned Nai-Ni Chen Dance Company, recently returned from its triumphant ambassadorial mission to Poland to represent the diverse dance art forms of America, has been selected to showcase at the Performing Arts Exchange (PAE) in Baltimore. The Company is well known for its diverse, colorful repertory that crosses the boundaries between traditional and contemporary, Asian and western. That repertory is highly innovative yet also includes works that preserve the Chinese traditional dances that serve as inspiration to its choreographer. In the upcoming PAE Juried Showcase, presented by the Southern Arts Federation, the Company will present three dances: the first will one of the most vibrant and acrobatic dances in traditional Chinese dance repertory and the second will be the Lion Dance, and an audience favorite that represents the lyrical side of Ms. Chen’s unique cross-cultural style, Duet on the River of Dreams. The Juried Showcase will be held at Baltimore’s historic Lyric Opera House; the Company’s performance will begin at 9:20PM. After the PAE Showcase, the Company will return to Poland to showcase one of Ms. Chen’s most visceral and theatrical mixed-media works, Dragons on the Wall, at the Konfrontations International Theatre Festival in Lublin; from Lublin, the Company will travel to seven cities in the Mexican state of Tamaulipas to perform its celebrated Unbroken Thread as part of a mixed repertoire at the Tamaulipas International Arts Festival.
