The critically acclaimed Nai-Ni Chen Dance Company will perform Song of the Phoenix at Bailey Hall at Broward College in Davie, Florida on September 24, 2016 at 7:30pm, with a master class and special performance for students on campus on Friday, September 23, 2016.
Experience the majestic thunder of the martial arts and the mysterious whisper of poetry through the global language of dance as performers glide across the stage with color, intensity and a whisper of Chinese tradition. Song of the Phoenix brings audiences on a journey through space and time to a place where tradition meets innovation and freedom arises from discipline. The phoenix is known in both eastern and western cultures as an awe-inspiring creature of death-defying strength and majesty. For the West, it symbolizes renewal, and for the East, the power and mystery of the feminine. Song of the Phoenix features original and unique choreography by Nai-Ni Chen, whose repertoire seamlessly blends ancient rituals and modern concepts.
Bailey Hall at Broward College is located at 3501 Davie Road in Davie, FL 33314. Tickets are $20-$38 and can be purchased at www.baileyhall.org/signature-series/item/nai-ni-chen-dance-song-of-the-phoenix.
