Wen Wei Dance’s work reflects a multiplicity of dance and social experiences. Each creation is influenced by the evolution of personal identity, and strives to reflect the underlying experience of social, cultural and personal development. Wen Wei Dance creates provocative performances of a distinctive trans-cultural sensibility. With a highly individual style, Artistic Director Wen Wei Wang fuses precise choreography with stunning visual design and music, turning each work into a rich and unique world.
Since 2003 the company has created a repertoire of full-length works that include Under the Skin (an international co-production with the Beijing Modern Dance Company), Cock-Pit (winner of the Rio Tinto Alcan Performing Arts Award), and Unbound (winner of the Isadora Award for Excellence in Choreography). Wen Wei Dance has performed these acclaimed works across Canada and at festivals around the world, including Canada Dance Festival, International Contemporary Dance Festival in Colombia, South America, the prestigious Venice Biennale in Italy and the National Center for the Performing Arts in Beijing.
