At a certain moment, it made me realize the beauty of being undifferentiated is also the greatest delight. I was struck by the powerful life force radiating from the dancers.

Tan Weiwei

This modern dance performance is like a mirror; the dancers lead the audience to see their own feelings about life.

Yan Bingyan

I heard the sound of the dancers hitting the ground at close range, and the tangle and struggle made us feel their pain, which is also the pain of all beings.

Geng Le

"Shock" doesn't even begin to describe how I feel... It’s the first time I marveled so deeply from the bottom of my heart that the human body can be so beautiful; I felt the power and great potential of life!

Lv Xingchen

Dancers flexibly move their bodies, sometimes rigid, sometimes enchanting. Something especially real touched me.

Tian Yuan

It resembles a mirror, reflecting the audiences’ heart, allowing me to regain the long-lost sensation of being moved.

Yao Chen

A feast of art! The whole universe is watching them dance! I could see the blood and sinew of the dancers trying to break free of their physical frames.

About Offering

Offering is the creation of a dance drama for the commission of the Dutch International Dance Festival. It is the director's perception of the inner spiritual world, starting with loving care for life and recognizing life in the larger universe. The work employs different characteristics of water—water as Source, as Swell, Float, Swirl, Soak, Rise and Dissolve. Water is formless, can be deformed, better than tangible. It's a property of water. It seems to be a process of development of everything in the world, for example, people. People alone "come" to the world, "Swell" in the world, "Swirl" in various social activities, "Soak" into their own and others thinking, "Rise" full of their own energy, "Dissolve" in the coexistence of emotions, at last "return" to the real self. A person's maturity and success need to start from scratch, like the process of a mature butterfly's evolution from pupa. These are the characteristics of water, of the growth of a human being, and of the transforming process of the Beijing Modern Dance Company.
