Chinese choreographer Jin Xing’s path from army colonel to award-winning dancer is one of discovery, strength, metamorphosis and triumph, and this journey is reflected in the intense beauty and powerful grace of her company’s members. Having studied in the United States with Martha Graham, Merce Cunningham and José Limón among others, Xing has won national and international awards for her innovative and deeply personal choreography. Founded in 1999, Shanghai’s Jin Xing Dance Theatre mesmerizes international audiences with its contemporary mix of Chinese traditionalism and modern dance.
