Imagine a traditional Chinese painting exhibit of blooming peonies, lucky carp, galloping horses, willowy bamboo, and more springing to life before your eyes through the movement of over eighty Chinese dancers. Inspired by the paintings of well-known artist Kuansoi (Christine) Kou, Atlanta Chinese Dance Company (ACDC)’s sixteenth original Chinese dance production Chinese Painting in Motion does that and more. Through the story of a Chinese painter who toils from obscurity to fame, the production captures the essence of classical Chinese art, dance, history, and culture. Performances also include two shorter Chinese folk dance collections “Chinese Ethnic Cultural Gathering” and “Xiamen Wedding.”For the first time ever, ACDC’s professional guest artists include dancers from the Atlanta Ballet as well as a Chinese painting exhibit by Kuansoi (Christine) Kou and live guzheng music by Shu-Fang Chen ( Yisian).
