Ballet Wild Grass

September 29, 2017 7:30 pm. Renowned for the alluring fusion of Chinese tradition with a fiercely modern sensibility, Ballet Wild Grass is adapted from the poetry collection Wild Grass written by Chinese literary giant Lu Xun in 1927.Comprising three movements, "Dead Fire," "Farewell of the Shadow," and "Dance of Extremity", Wild GrassĀ unfolds as an evocative abstraction of Lu's volatile elemental landscapes, accompanied by solo piano, strings, and experimental electronica. White paper leaves scatter underfoot as dancers alternate between balletic grace and tension, conjuring the fragility and vitality of the human spirit.Join the Facebook Event!. 1385 Woodroffe AvenueE BuildingNepean, ON K2G 1V8..
