Beijing Contemporary Dance Theater (China) - Haze

Haze came into being as a creative response to the economic and environmental crises of early 2009. On a bare stage covered in thick sponge mats, the dancers strive to keep their footing in time with the brooding contemporary sacred music of Gorecki, later giving way the electronica of Biosphere. The bare stage, challenging surface, and ponderous music frame the movements of the dancers, as they stumble, roll, fall, crawl and collapse on the uncertain terrain. The piece proceeds as a metaphor that links the environmental haze and pollution with the spiritual confusion involved in a time of social or individual crisis. Haze explores the spiritual struggle of finding one’s way through darkness. Haze premiered on May 5, 2009, at the Tianqiao Theater, Beijing.
