Limited Capacity seats available

Yan Wang, Ph.D. student, Chapman University College of Educational Studies, and Ming Yang Li, Lecturer in Martial Arts and Traditional Culture, Northeast Normal University (China) (Participants: 24).

  • Description: This presentation/workshop is an attempt to discover from the perspectives of Tai Chi and improvisation a way of gaining access to certain central questions of modern Chinese society – to elaborate, from this theatrical and corporeal angle, a range of wider social, political and ethical issues, such as the relationship between tradition and modernity, individualism versus collectivism, as well as the issue of morality. A Tai Chi style is not just ritualized performance, a type of bodily exercise, in the sense of physical moves and the focussing of Chi energy, but is spiritually and socially pedagogic, in the sense of collective learning, living and struggling to achieve common goals.
