5 Seasons


5 Seasons is a contemporary interpretation of the Wu-Xing. Nine performers transform over the course of a metaphorical year through movement, sound, and video. This evening-length dance work explores the Wu-Xing, the Chinese fivefold conceptual schema that has been practiced over 2,000 years. Used to explain a wide variety of phenomena, it describes states both in nature and in the body, from cosmic cycles to relationships between internal organs. Choreographed and directed by Kira Blazek.
