Standing Before Darkness by Tibetan Choreographer, Sang Jijia, As BeijingDance / LDTX’s resident choreographer, This is the second work he has created for the company. This work demonstrates Sang Jijia’s unique style in which he ruminates on the dancers’ bodies and combines their brilliant technicality and pedestrian movements to evoke extreme psychological tension and asymmetry. During the performance, the dancers will be accompanied by live electronic music composed and played by an accomplished Hong Kongese musician, Dickson Dee.
