Taiwan Ballet Company Annual Performance ~ Flying

飛翔

We are going to present you the very challenging “Grand pas classique”

In the new choreography “Heaven”, the artistic director Chuang Yuanting adapts the traditional Minnan Beiguan Music and the dancer interprets “the medium” with ballet pointe shoes. It’s a whole new challenge.
Next, “Black Hole” is performed by four female dancers with the Violin Concerto by Esa-Pekks Salonen.

“Breathtaking”, the stunning pas de deux is created by Taiwanese choreographer Chao Lee-Wei, especially for Taiwan Ballet Company.

“Flying” with the third movement of Violin Concerto by Felix Mendelssohn, the dancers present the fast-paced pointe work of the neo-classical ballet style.

For the second part of the performance, we will bring you the complete three movements of Violin Concerto in D Major by Tyzen Hsiao,
She is so beautiful ~

Several years ago, when Chuang Yuanting first listened to this beautiful music, she was deeply touched. In this music, she saw the sorrow and anger from our motherland Taiwan, and at the same time got the feeling of the perseverance of our people. Here in Taiwan, we share the bright and hopeful future together!

So Beautiful, our motherland, Taiwan !
She nurtures and raises us up. She is so beautiful!

We would like to express our total appreciation to composer Tyzen Hsiao for creating such beautiful and powerful music for Taiwan!

Many thanks to Cultural Foundation of Tyzen Hsiao  for authorizing the copyright of this music!

We sincerely invite you to join the ballet banquet with Taiwan Ballet Company on August 17/18 at Taiwan Traditional Theatre Center.

Thank you, Director Te-Sheng Wei, for giving the support and encouragement to the Taiwan Ballet Company. And thank you for your care for the art environment in Taiwan.

“…What is ballet belonged to Taiwan? Ballet is originated from western culture after all… Deep cultural cultivation has to be started from the land. If only our thinking is rooted from this land, no matter what kind of  art  form it is, it will grow into the flowers of this land. And that is the way it should be.
