Nai-Ni Chen Dance Company announces Year of the Golden Ox, a family-friendly production on the arrival of the Chinese Lunar New Year. Year of the Golden Ox is an all-day virtual celebration suitable for children ages 6-15. A one-hour special celebration that highlights the Company's repertory and guest artist's past notable performances will be featured Thursday, February 11 at 7:30pm. This special online virtual presentation will include the works of the Chinese Music Ensemble of New York, the Renaissance Chinese Opera Society, Kuaiban Artist XingYe Ma, Kuan Opera actor Yaozhong Zhang, Yonghong Jia and others. The company will perform some of the most treasured traditional dances performed at the Chinese New Year-the Lion Dance and the Dragon Dance. Originated during the Tang Dynasty more than 3,000 years ago, these dances celebrate the coming of the spring and the harmony between nature and humankind. Showcasing the diversity of the traditional and contemporary Chinese performing arts, the company will perform a colorful folk dance from the Xingjian Province, an area near Central Asia on the Silk Road. Instrumental music features Erhu, Ruan, Pipa, Chinese Opera and Kuaiban (a form of rap originated over 200 years ago in Beijing). The audience will also be able to engage the artists live to discuss the music and dance they saw on stage. Advanced registration required.
