Lily Cai Chinese Dance Company: Dynasties and Beyond

Elegant, sensual and captivating, the Lily Cai Chinese Dance Company melds ancient Chinese forms with modern dance in an artistic and inventive marriage of styles. “Dynasties and Beyond” embarks on a dazzling journey of contrasts; from ancient Chinese dynasties to remote regional cultures, and from the elegance of court dances to the dynamic brilliance of contemporary ribbon dancing. With vivid choreography and style, Lily Cai reveals the strength, beauty and complexity of the Chinese woman from the distant past to today.

"In the first six spellbinding minutes, Lily Cai served notice to her audience that they were in for an evening that would be not only exotic but brilliantly theatrical… a terrific show." — Sacramento Bee
