Peony Dreams: On The Other Side Of Sleep
Company: Yin Mei
Venue: Ellen Stewart Theatre @ La MaMa
Location: New York, NY
Concept & Choreography by Yin Mei
New York’s Yin Mei Dance brings this inspired new take on The Peony Pavilion, one of the most revered plays in Chinese literature. A surreal and epic love story, set amidst the violence of the Chinese Cultural Revolution.
Peony Dreams: On the Other Side of Sleep follows a young dancer who is compelled on a journey across time and space, fiction and reality, life and death. Don’t miss this stunning, boundary-defying new work of dance-theater; an insightful look at the liminal space between reality of our personal histories and our memories of them.
YIN MEI DANCE is a transdisciplinary contemporary dance company based in New York City with strong ties to China. The company has toured across the USA, Asia, and Europe in notable venues from Jacob’s Pillow, Yerba Buena, Lincoln Center, The City Center, DTW, LaMaMa, Movement Research at Judson Church, Theatre du Chartelet Paris, National Theater of Beijing and Nanjing, and many others.
