World Premiere of Ying Yun (英云)

Tue, Feb 19 - Sat, Feb 23

Scotiabank Dance Centre map

Choreographer Wen Wei Wang creates a new contemporary performance dance piece with a dynamic all-female troupe of dancers in response to an intense epoch in the battle for women’s rights. This timely work, born at a heated time in the trajectory of gender discourse, raises the platform of choreographing to the female performers.
Ying Yun is the name of Wang’s mother who passed away from ovarian cancer four years ago. A significant influence on his becoming an artist, Wang dedicates this new creation to her, engaging the dancers in interpreting her story, and in turn expressing their own intersectional experiences.
“Wang is a proven maverick of wild imagination.” Globe and Mail
