Dance Artist Yabin Wang And World-Renowned Choreographer Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui To Launch Brand New Genesis World Tour In November In Beijing, Shanghai And Guangzhou

BEIJING, Sept. 2, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- A joint press conference was held August 31 at the China Millennium Monument Theater by Yabin and Her Friends Season 5, a branded performance event series created by celebrated Chinese young dance artist Yabin Wang together with world-renowned contemporary dance choreographer Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui (Belgian) and his company Eastman.

The brand new production of season 5, named Genesis, is created by Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui under the commission of Yabin Studio and jointly produced by Yabin Studio, China International Culture and Arts Company and Eastman. It marks the first attempt of panorama cooperation between a Chinese dancer and an international choreographer in choreography, production and performance.

Genesis uses "the origin of creation and formation" as its theme and is aimed at discovering the original force coming from constructing and deconstructing, structuring and restructuring an organism, using the metaphoric description of a tree growing, with its root representing history and the past and its branches present and the future; they represent a space-time continuum where past, present and future – influenced by the uncertainties of passing time – evolve, recur and return. The work unveils the ever-lasting humanistic themes of the world on new and old, birth and death, love and hatred, and conveys aesthetic philosophical thoughts via dance. It is a cultivation of consciousness, as well as a renewal of visual sense to enlighten audience to re-understand and re-imagine the meaning of the existence and the expression of dance.

H.E. Mr. Michel Malherbe, the newly appointed Belgian Ambassador to China, commented: " Genesis is an important creative cooperation, bringing together cultural practices of both countries. It is one of the first going that far in joint creation. I am very much looking forward to see the result. Artists and institutions on both sides made concerted efforts to realize their collective ideas. Genesis proves that shared passion can transcend differences in language and culture. The piece will be shown both in China as well as in Europe and as such it will connect audiences from all over the globe. I think our future lies in this kind of exchanges as to better understand each other by seeing the world from different angles."

As an international celebrated artist who has over the past more than ten years created over 20 dance works for famous ballet ensembles and theaters including Paris Opera Ballet, Danish Royal Ballet, Ballets de Monte Carlo, Cirque du Soleil, Sadler's Wells Theatre, Teatro Alla Scalla and Le Grand Theatre de Geneve, among which Sutra, Loin, Babel (words) and TeZukA have been staged over one hundred times in the world. He has worked with many noted artists including British film director Joe Wright and British sculptor Antony Gormley, Mr. Cherkaoui attaches a great importance to this cooperation with the young Chinese dance artist, choreographer and producer Yabin Wang.

"The first encounter with Yabin left me a very deep impression", said Mr. Cherkaoui at the press conference. "I am not only amazed by her versatility as an accomplished young dancer, choreographer and producer, but I am also impressed by her creative ideas and unrelenting pursuit of arts. We are much like-minded in many aspects of dance and philosophy. This is the basis of our cooperation."
