Gu Jiani: Exit

Overview

Gu Jiani is one of Chinas most internationally acclaimed dance creators, now in Norway for the first time. Gu Jiani's work embodies both fusion and juxtaposition. Originating from Southern China, Gu trained in both ballet and classical Chinese dance. Through exploration and self-discovery, she has rejected conventional training to create her own unique style of movement combining the precision of ballet and the virtuosity of Chinese classical dance. Her choreography has toured Hong Kong Festival, the US, Melbourne Festival, and throughout China. In Exit, Gu explores the human desire to exit the mundane. In a perpetual cycle of creation and destruction, we seek paths to liberty and self-fulfillment, yet our desires simultaneously stand in our own way. Inspired by the physics principle that all acting forces create equal and opposite reacting forces, Exit explores the interplay of cause and effect.

Company: Untitled Group Concept design and choreography: Gu Jiani Dancers: Gu Jiani, Wang Xuanqi, Lei Yan The performance is part of CODA Oslo International Dance Festival.
