Body Language: Guang Chang Wu
Over 100 million people gather daily in China to dance and socialize in public parks, neighborhood squares, and even underneath freeway overpasses. The dance styles can vary from Guang Chang Wu, a form of Chinese square dance, to Yangge, a popular folk dance. Over the years, new pockets of public dance groups have emerged in cities around the world. Director Jean Liu captures this celebratory profile piece by bringing dancers from Manhattan Performing Arts Troupe, Team ZhiQing, and Team Red Dance Studio/Eva Dance Studio to reflect on their love for dance and heritage.
