BEIJING LIGHTS UP "THE WALL"
LOS ANGELES -- Beijing Modern Dance Co. will bring its production of REAR LIGHT to the Music Center, Mar. 4 & 5. Set to music from Pink Floyd's The Wall, the new ballet explores the world of the disaffected--a younger generation without aim or direction. Choreographed by Li Han-Zhong and Ma Bo, REAR LIGHT reflects a young Chinese generation struggling to reconcile its traditional culture with influences from abroad and a thirst for freedom.
Beijing Modern Dance Co. was founded in 1995 as an "independent" company under the leadership of the Beijing Cultural Bureau. It has gathered under its umbrella some of the top modern dancers in China and has over the past ten years built a team of outstanding choreographers.
Jones/Zane's work has often been described as a fusion of dance and theater. The company's repertoire is highly diverse in subject matter, visual imagery, and length of each dance, ranging from fifteen minutes to two hours.
Dorothy Chandler Pavilion, Music Center, 135 N. Grand Ave. For tickets & information call (213) 972-0711
