Chongqing – Not long ago, the renowned European dance magazine Dancer featured Chongqing Ballet Troupe. The coverage gives a detailed introduction to the ballet troupe’s original performances including Shangri-La, Ripples Across Stagnant Water and some other mordern dances. It also sheds spot light on the troupe’s uniqueness of combing the western art with eastern soul.
We conducted an interview with Ms. Liu Jun, the Executive Director and Artistic Director of Chongqing Ballet Troupe to hear about the full story behind the Europen report.
“We have strong will to creat and develop our original performance with uniqueness. Ballet originates from the West, and when it comes to China, it needs to integrate with Chinese art. All the clashes in artistic forms, contents and styles are meant to reach a balance and harmony at the end. An integrated final work with creativity is able to have people feel fresh and new. ” said Ms. Liu Jun.
Chongqing Ballet Troupe has toured around Europe twice while delibered over 50 performances. Due to COVID 19, this year they postponed the tour in Denmark and Germany. “Performance brokerage from Spain invites us for the 3rd tour there. They are confident the Spain audience will enjoy the unique original ballet performance delivered by us, which combine the beauty of the West and the East. ” Liu Jun told iChongqing.
