In just five weeks, with 20 dancers from two countries and two cultures overcoming language barriers, differences in physiques and artistic sensibilities to create two breathtaking and vastly different dance works.
Expressions Dance Company and BeijingDance/LDTX present Matrix.
Defined as a “cultural or social environment or context in which something develops”, Matrix is the result of an immersive creative development in Beijing in August and September, producing two new works by multi award-winning Australian choreographer, Stephanie Lake, and the highly-acclaimed Chinese choreographer, MA Bo.
EDC’s six ensemble members are joined on stage by the 14-strong company of LDTX creating a wildly ambitious and dazzling display of dance virtuosity.
In 2015, through a long-term friendship with artistic director Willy Tsao, EDC entered into a ground-breaking partnership with leading Chinese contemporary dance companies, BeijingDance/LDTX, City Contemporary Dance Company (Hong Kong) and Guangdong Modern Dance Company (Guangzhou).
Matrix will reach audiences from Brisbane and Sydney to Tianjin, Hong Kong and Beijing. Don’t miss this meeting of cross-cultural creative philosophies, side-by-side in this ambitious, thought-provoking and visually arresting performance.
