Celebrate AAPI Choreographers With Us!
This year’s Dancing Moons Festival features the world premiere of Exquisite Corpse – a new ballet co-choreographed by Phil Chan, Seyong Kim, and Elaine Kudo. Based on a Surrealist parlor game invented in 1925 in which players collaboratively create a figure by taking turns drawing sections of a body on a sheet of paper, folded to hide each individual contribution. Playing off this concept, each choreographer will create a solo (head), group (torso), and duet (legs) and the nine sections will be woven together to create an “Exquisite Corpse.”
Also featuring Amber Waves by Phil Chan (2022); Layer Upon Layer by Caili Quan (2022); and Ballet des Porcelaines or The Teapot Prince by Phil Chan (original 1739; reimagined 2021).
Tickets starting at $40.
Dancing Moons Festival is co-presented by Oakland Ballet Company.
