createDATE: Dancing in Color
Wuzee (wu zi, a dancer's aura and energy), Tufts' only Chinese fusion dance
team, will co-host this kinesthetic createDATE. Through performance of Chinese
dance, Wuzee strives to spread the appreciation of Chinese culture to the Tufts
community. Yuan Yunsheng's mural, Ancient
Chinese Tales—Blue + Red + Yellow = White?combines a modern narrative with
elements from folklores and mythology. Similarly, Wuzee combines a variety of
traditional dance styles with contemporary elements. Wuzee will showcase a folk
dance, followed by a traditional sleeve dance teach-in (participation is
optional, but encouraged). Prepare for a colorful feast for the eyes.
