Iceland Dance Company China Premiere
Iceland Dance Company , a superb world class modern dance company from Northern Europe - Iceland, is going to make its first ever appearance with two award-winning modern dance classics in China .One performance only, in three cities, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Beijing.
Iceland is probably the furthest European country from China. From northern lights to Bjork, the wonders of Iceland never cease. Iceland Dance Company is a state-of-the-art company within the flux of the modern dance world. ID has worked with Europe's leading choreographers as well as nurtured those from Iceland itself. Under the artistic directorship of Katrin Hall, this colorful, powerful and diverse modern dance company is internationally revered as the incredible diamond from Reykjavik.
In their China debut, ID will present with two of their best work in recent years to contrast two extreme aspects of love. In Luna (2004 Icelandic "Dance Award" and "Best Dance Piece"), young people dance the waltz of life under the moonlight to cherish their youthful dreams and burning passion. Images of love, longing, hope and joy are orchestrated into a dreamlike gypsy serenade. Named one of 2006's top ten European premieres by Dance Europe, Happy New Year is European Tanzteater at its best, fusing theatrical humor and sarcasm into a choreography tailored made for the dancers.
The performance is a treat for the senses and a challenge for the intellect.
