Wen Wei Dance: Cock-Pit

By Julye Huggins
Wen Wei Dance - Cock-Pit

Vancouver’s Wen Wei Dance is on tour with Cock-Pit, hitting Toronto’s Harbourfront Centre April 9th and 10th, followed by Québec City’s La Rotonde April 15th through 17th and then Montréal’s Agora de la danse April 21st through 24th. One presenter, Danceworks, describes the work as: “A highly kinetic 70-minute quintet for four men and one woman inspired by Wen Wei Wang’s memories of his student days in China at a boarding school run by the People’s Liberation Army. Four-foot long pheasant feathers extend limbs in his revealing, ravishing and entertaining work that touches on adolescent sexual awakening.” Dancers include Scott Augustine, Alison Denham, Edmond Kilpatrick, Josh Martin and David Raymond.For additional profiles on Wen Wei Wang, be sure to check out the Summer 2009 and Summer 2006 back issues of The Dance Current print magazine.
