On May 15 and 16, choreographer Wang Yuanyuan from the Beijing Contemporary Ballet will present a theatric dance, "Lotus," which was inspired by the Chinese classic novel, "The Plum in a Golden Vase." The dance describes sexual relations by dancers' limbs and bodies, depicting conflicts between people's desire and the social ethic.
On May 29 and 30, "The Roots," by artistic director and choreographer, Kader Attou, and the hip-hop troupe ACCRORAP, will take audiences on an adventurous journey. Eleven hip-hop dancers will perform to the rhythms of Beethoven, Brahms and electronic music, challenging the aesthetics and sensibilities of hip-hop, Indian Kathak dance and contemporary dance. It is a part of the 2015 Festival Croisements, a decade-old cross-cultural program put on by China and France.
