DU-K - Beijing 9 Contemporary Dance Theatre / SOL Dance Company, Beer Sheva
Beijing 9 Contemporary Dance Theatre / SOL Dance Company, Beer Sheva
“DU-K” (co-existence) is the first dance co-production between China and Israel. A Sino/Israeli cooperation project of the Beijing 9 Contemporary Dance Theater with the Israeli SOL Dance Company from Beer Sheva. Produced by the 4th Silk Road International Arts Festival in Xi’an celebrating the 25th anniversary of diplomatic relations between Israel and China.
An original ballet with 14 Israeli and Chinese dancers, created by the award-winning Israeli choreographer Eyal Dadon. Premiered in China to great acclaim, the piece will be performed in Israel in January 2018.
“DU-K” expresses in dance, song and drama the similarities and differences between two rich and dynamic cultures, combining tradition and innovation, a combination of Western aesthetics with Chinese elements. The show was inspired by the two month residency of Israeli choreographer Eyal Dadon and his fourteen Chinese and Israeli dancers in Xi’an, the capital of ancient China, famous for the four thousand buried clay soldiers. The result was a fascinating experience for a superb team of Chinese and Israeli artists.
The premiere was held with great success at the Beijing New Dance
Festival and the Xi’an International Dance Festival in September 2017.
The show will be performed in Israel in January 2018.
