Oakland Ballet Company: Dancing Moons Festival

April 8, 2023 @ 2:30 pm - 4:00 pm

$25 – $55

A celebration of Asian American Pacific Islander choreographers

This year’s Dancing Moons Festival features the world premiere of Exquisite Corpse – a new ballet co-choreographed by Phil Chan, Seyong Kim, and Elaine Kudo. Based on a Surrealist parlor game invented in 1925 in which players collaboratively create a figure by taking turns drawing sections of a body on a sheet of paper, folded to hide each individual contribution. Playing off this concept, each choreographer will create a solo (head), group (torso), and duet (legs) and the nine sections will be woven together to create an “Exquisite Corpse.”

Also featuring:

  • Amber Waves by Phil Chan (2022)
  • Layer Upon Layer by Caili Quan (2022)
  • Ballet des Porcelaines or The Teapot Prince by Phil Chan (original 1739; reimagined 2021).
