  After touring nearly 20 countries on four continents, including performances at Lincoln Center and Sydney Opera House, TAO finally returns home to perform for Beijing audiences on Aug. 3 & 4. Invited by NCPA, TAO Dance Theater will perform “4” and “2”, which won critical acclaim at Lincoln Center Festival in 2012. Do not miss the company that the New York Times has called “extraordinary” and the Financial Times has called “a force of nature.” Legendary Cloud Gate Founder and Artistic Director Lin Hwai-min says the work “belongs to the 21st century.... In my dreams I can create dance works like these, yet at the same time I know that I am not capable.”

  Please join us for the RAS-hosted pre-performance talk by Alison M. Friedman, founding director of Ping Pong Productions and leading expert in China's burgeoning performing arts market. Ping Pong Productions is a producing and consulting organization headquartered in Beijing with the mission of cultural diplomacy. They recently brought the first American theatre company ever to perform at the National Center. Read more at www.pingpongarts.org
