DANCE | Nai-Ni Chen Dance Company 

Nazareth College Arts Center will present the critically acclaimed, cross-cultural dance of Nai-Ni Chen Dance Company on Saturday, November 14. Nai-Ni Chen was a renowned traditional dancer in Taiwan, and at age 17, served on ambassadorial culture missions to 19 countries as a bearer of the classical dance tradition for the Republic of China. She began modern dance training in 1976, and came to America to receiver her masters from New York University. Her company has been on more than 20 national tours and 9 tours abroad since its inception in 1988.

Today, Chen's wide-ranging repertoire combines dances that originated thousands of years ago with highly abstract American modern dance. Chen's choreography blends freedom of movement with discipline, combining elements from the flowing grace of Chinese calligraphy to the thundering power of martial arts. Signature works allude to Chinese people's struggle in the past century, Buddhist and Taoist ideas, and Chinese traditional art and philosophy.

The performance will take place at 8 p.m. in the Arts Center Callahan Theatre (4245 East Avenue). Tickets are $50-$65, and ticket holders may attend a pre-performance lecture with members of the company at 7 p.m. in the Peace Theater (room A14), located in the lower level of the Arts Center. To reserve tickets or for more information, call 389-2170 or visit artscenter.naz.edu.
