OPEN STUDIO ON MAY 10

On May 10, 2014 (Saturday), Dongmei will be holding an open studio for her upcoming performance this June. The open studio will be held at Earl Kraul Studio of the Dance Centre (677 Davie Street, Vancouver, BC) from 2:15 to 3:30 p.m.

The purpose of the open studio is to invite prestigious local media, arts critics and other professional dancers to gain an exclusive insight into the choreographic concepts behind Dongmei’s production, as well as the cultural background embedded in each dance.

During the open studio, Dongmei will showcase her award piece, The Blossoming Apricot Branch, which has won numerous awards such as the Seoul International Dance and Choreography Award, and the Taoli Cup. She will also share how she choreographs her other piece, ‘Ode to the Corals’, which were deemed as ‘the best Chinese Dance in recent years’ by Liu Fei, Consul General of People’s Republic of China, Vancouver.

We will offer you the best performance and insight from the top Chinese Folk Dance artist, followed by opportunities of one-on-one interview about Dongmei herself and her upcoming performance in June. Both English and Chinese interviews are welcome.

 

呼吸,提沉,眼神,指尖……一台舞蹈演出的准备过程需要舞者专注的投入以及对细节几近苛刻的追求。舞台上的每一个转身、每一个亮相,在创作阶段都可能会耗费数个小时的雕琢。在灯光、鲜花的背后,舞者都需要经过哪些历练,才能完成完美的谢幕?

为了给广大读者一个更好的了解舞蹈创作过程的机会,我们将在五月10日星期六下午2:15至3:30在Scotiabank Dance Centre的Earl Kraul Studio举办冬梅舞蹈工作室开放日。届时,众多媒体和舞蹈爱好者将有机会近距离观摩冬梅排练过程,并且进行关于民族民间舞、关于中国文化的探讨。

工作室开放日是舞蹈界独特的交流方式,舞蹈的张力也会因为距离的接近而无限扩大。这一次,冬梅会向大家展示六月份演出的剧目之一:《一枝红杏》,以及一些其他舞蹈的片段。我们也非常希望能和大家有面对面的交流、探讨。或许你的一句话就会成为新的火花,为冬梅的艺术创作带来不一样的灵感。
