Wen Wei Dance presents the world premiere, Ying Yun, from Artistic Director Wen Wei Wang, February 19 – 23, 2019 at Scotiabank Dance Centre. Being born at a heated time of gender discourse, this new full-length work raises the platform of choreographing to five female performers. The creative process involves dialogues between Ying Yun’s dancers and artistic director Wen Wei Wang, with the aim to translate their stories into movement.
Ying Yun is the name of Wang’s mother, who passed away four years ago from ovarian cancer. A significant influence on him becoming an artist, Wang dedicates the new creation to her and engages the dancers to interpret the story, and in turn share their intersectional experiences.
