Elegant, sensual, and captivating, the Lily Cai Chinese Dance Company melds ancient Chinese forms with modern dance in an artistic and inventive marriage of styles. Director Lily Cai, a former principal dancer with the Shanghai Opera House, draws on her cultural heritage to create visually-stunning dance. Bamboo Girls captures the shy but playful folk spirit of Dai village girls from Southern China as they travel up the mountain and dance all night. The red Chinese fan takes center stage in new, modern dance, Xing. From the haunting Candelas piece, performed with lit candles, to the flurry of colorful ribbons in the Silk Cascade finale, the Lily Cai Chinese Dance Company brings you the best of Chinese and Western dance.
