Wen Wei Dance Presents Ying Yun: Win Tickets

Comments 16 by Rebecca Bollwitt

Wen Wei Dance’s latest choreographic creation, Ying Yun, premieres February 19 – 23, 2019 at Scotiabank Dance Centre in Vancouver. This timely work, born at a heated time in the trajectory of gender discourse, raises the platform of choreographing to the female performers.

Wen Wei Dance Presents Ying Yun

When: February 19 to 23, 2019 at 7:00pm
Where: Scotiabank Dance Centre (677 Davie St, Vancouver)
Tickets: $37 online now, discounts for Dance Centre and CADA Members

The creative process involves a series of dialogues between Ying Yun’s dancers and Artistic Director Wen Wei Wang, with the aim of translating their stories into movement. Ying Yun is the name of Wang’s mother (Ying means Hero & Yun means Cloud), who passed away from ovarian cancer four years ago.

A significant influence on his becoming an artist, Wang dedicates this new creation to her, engaging the dancers in interpreting her story, and in turn expressing their own intersectional experiences.

This exciting full-length dance piece is an extension of Wang’s first all-female performers’ creation, which began in 2017 for the SFU School of the Contemporary Arts. In Ying Yun, Wang channels and melds his emotional association to his mother with elements of Tai Chi: silence and intentional breathing. It is created with research and improvisational methods to ensure a collaboratively creative process with the dancers.
