Beyond Calligraphy is the most popular repertoire of China’s Guangdong Modern Dance Company. Inspired by the poetic spirit of Chinese calligraphy, this award-winning work is comprised of five dances and is “full of meditative grace, sharp, cut-crystal physicality and languid dignity” (The Washington Post).

This engagement is supported by the Arts Midwest Touring Fund: China on Tour, a program of Arts Midwest that is funded by the National Endowment for the Arts, with additional contributions from the Crane Group.

This project received support from the Kirkpatrick Family Fund.
