Choreographed by acclaimed tiger princess dance projects artistic director Yvonne Ng, announced the world premieres of her solo In Search of the Holy Chop Suey and her work for a trio, Zhong Xin, in a compelling double bill with DanceWorks at Harbourfront Centre’s NextSteps.
Where, or in what time space, does identity reside? In Search of the Holy Chop Suey ponders a life of creation and imitation in movement and mines influences from sources as varied as Ng’s mother, modern dance and kung fu legends, ordinary people, wild animals and more.
Ng extends the exploration to Zhong Xin (which translates to centre or core in Mandarin), her trio for three splendid dancers – Irvin Chow, Mairéad Filgate and Luke Garwood. Ng and her dancers propose an unknowable universe of possibilities – anchored by memory, identity and the body.
World Premiere dates: Thursday, November 24 – Saturday, November 26 at 8pm.
Prior to the week of the show – $36; During the week of the show – $40; Day of Show – $42. Discounts for seniors ($28), arts industry (20% discount), students ($15) and groups of 10+ ($23).
