Explore the splendor of Other Suns, a trilogy of dances created by Margaret Jenkins and her company in a cross-cultural collaboration with the Guangdong Modern Dance Company, China's oldest modern dance troupe. Through an intricate combination of contemporary dance forms, the work investigates symmetry and asymmetry in both Chinese and American culture. Other Suns transcends national and cultural barriers, offering a new perspective on balance and imbalance, risk and rest in our rapidly evolving global society. This unique work is set to live music performed by the Paul Dresher Ensemble.
