Dance ensemble graces DC’s cherry blossom season with “Splendor of China”

with No Comments

Vibrant colors, oriental elegance, and magnificent traditions, that is what you will experience from the extravagant dance “The Splendor of China”!

国色1Distilled from 5000 years of classic and traditional art forms, The Splendor of China is a dance show that embodies the heart and soul of Chinese culture. A prominent and popular ensemble in the past five decades, The Oriental Song and Dance has excelled in showcasing the essence of Chinese civilization to the world, and meanwhile, bringing back the world’s diverse art forms to Chinese audience. The Splendor of China is simply one of its finest presentations!

The color tone of this dance takes inspiration from the white-and-blue porcelain; uses stage design and dance language to dramatize tea ceremony, calligraphy and water-and-ink painting, and has even incorporated traditional Chinese medicine quite artfully.

All of these Chinese cultural elements are cleverly expressed with traditional and modern dance languages with palpable emotions, making this show both elegantly classical and fashionably modern. It is indeed a cultural feast aimed to please overseas audience! 国色2

Alternating between realistic portrayal and impressionistic expression, this dance show symbolizes the blending of poetry, calligraphy, ritual ceremonies and music seamlessly together, painting quite a majestic and magnificent picture of this ancient civilization. Or rather, it is simply a poem emanating colors and aromas or a painting flowing with celestial sound.

Only one show will be presented in Washington DC metro area – and you do not want to MISS this!

它是一首流动的斑斓诗篇,它是一幅行走的丹青画卷。

悠悠古曲,今时重忆,几载如画往昔;礼乐声声,丹霞昭贵,多少澎湃情怀。

望不穿的,是那江南烟雨中的一抹淡彩情韵;诉不尽的,是那北国残阳下的千古碧血丹心。
