*February 14 & 15*
*US Premiere*
*BeijingDance/LDTX *
*Arc*
*Mandell Theater, Drexel University*
*3220 Chestnut Street*

On February 14 and 15 at 8pm, Chinese contemporary dance company
BeijingDance/LDTX will be performing the US premiere of *Arc* at Mandell
Theater, 3220 Chestnut Street.

*Arc* is the first full length work by resident artist and dancer turned
choreographer, ADIYA, who is from Inner Mongolia. Arc is a symbolic
reflection on the arc of life; the ups and downs and the ebbs and flows and
is inspired by dkyil’khor, the process of creating Tibetan sand mandalas
and the Buddhist doctrinal belief in the transitory nature of material
life. The piece was chosen by BeijingDance/LDTX Artistic Director Willy
TSAO for its dynamism, and as a representation of a new generation of
Chinese artists.

BeijingDance/LDTX is China’s first registered private professional
contemporary dance company and one of the largest contemporary dance
companies in the country. Their world class dancers come from all over
China. Philadelphia is the first, and only East Coast stop, on a 4 city
tour.


Tickets are $20 General and $15 for students. Group discounts are also
available. Tickets can be purchased at drexelperformingarts.com.
