Michael Mao Dance

Posted by audreyross

Michael Mao Dance begins its 26th year with a program of major Mao dances, including his celebrated 1994-DSCH, a stunning work to Shostakovich's String Quartet #8. Dedicated to victims of fascism and war by the composer, the quartet has achieved its place in history as Shostakovich's cry against the holocaust and oppression. The three additional ballets on the program, all on a lighter note, are set to music by Kurt Weill, Huang Ruo, and the dramatic Taiko drumming.
