365 Ways of Doing and Undoing Orientalism

The East, not surely by tradition or cultural prospective, usually refers to Asia and the West for Europe and America. What do you correlate when coming across the East? calligraphy, Buddha, Feng Shui, bowl, chopsticks, Mandarin gown, martial arts, long sleeves, dragon,… or meditation and yoga?

 

365 Ways of Doing and Undoing Orientalism is a highly acclaimed repertoire of CCDC choreographed by veteran choreographer Willy Tsao with Sang Jijia and Xing Liang . Through an exotic display and re-twist of “oriental” elements , 365 casts doubts on the West’s fascination with the Orient. Let’s look forward to 2015 version after its previous success in Australia, the US and Italy!
