Since its founding in 2008, TAO Dance Theater has taken China’s dance world by storm. The company has performed in every modern dance festival throughout the country and has collaborated with leading Chinese artists across genres including theatre, experimental music, film, visual arts and installation. TAO Dance Theater has been featured in performances, choreography and teaching residencies and festivals worldwide. The company has brought modern dance all over the world, including rural locations that had never before seen a modern dance performance.

Program:
4’: ‘'4' features a foursome navigating both internal and external spaces in constant synchronized motion and never touching. The work is a continuation of the choreographer's minimalist experimentation that explores the potential of the human body as a visual element devoid of story-telling or representation.

5’: In ‘5,’ which premiered in Amsterdam in 2013, the dancers do engage in physical contact, in fact they move in an indistinguishable kaleidoscopic mass of limbs and light, never dispersing even for a moment.


It is easy to see why the choreographer and co-founder Tao Ye has captured attention as a radical new presence on the country’s burgeoning contemporary dance scene.”
—The Times (UK)

"Think of a jewel -- small, structured, perfectly formed, but with unexpected depth and glorious complexity....attention must be paid; Tao Ye may just emerge as China's greatest choreographer." —TIME OUT BEIJING
“…extraordinary and appealing.” —The New York Times
