Xing Dance Theatre

Baltimore, MD

combining Chinese Classical and modern dance

Following the circle of life theory in Chinese Buddhism, Equinox and Solstice journeys through the afterlife with a combination of Chinese Classical
and modern dance. Starting from death and following the soul’s journey to start life anew, the work’s four main sections follow the seasons of Spring,
Summer, Fall, and Winter. Design elements highlight the four Chinese elements of Feng Shui – water, fire, wood, gold, and earth – with the Equinox
and Solstice representing the lightest and darkest days of the year.

Xing Dance Theater (XDT) is based in Baltimore, Maryland. By combining Chinese Classical and modern dance, XDT connects audiences to rich and varied
