Description

B.DANCE was founded in 2014 by choreographer and artistic director Tsai Po-Cheng, who was named one of the world's most promising choreographers by German magazine "tanz" in both 2017 and 2018. The company's style combines martial arts, other Asian movement traditions and street dance with a contemporary kinetic vocabulary, and has showcased its work to captive audiences worldwide. 

Floating Flowers is inspired by a traditional Taiwanese religious celebration that takes place at the Ghost Festival, one of the most beautiful and popular Buddhist ceremonies in the country. Floating lanterns placed on warter are meant to worship deities, to send away bad luck and to bring happiness.

Appearing to waft gracefully above water, the dancers are wrapped in vaporous muslins which represent floating lanterns. The choreography is refreshingly positive and optimistic. By combining traditional Asian movements and martial arts with contemporary dance, B.DANCE offers a theatrical, physical, and emotional performance, not without a touch humor!
