2017 Tour in Israel

365 Ways of Doing and Undoing Orientalism


“Fun, quirky, modern, playful, elegant, resourceful, smart, creative, satirical, wisecracking…There is an endless list of words to describe this multi-faceted production.”

HKELD, Hong Kong

“Willy Tsao’s talent in choreography, his wisdom and courage are demonstrated in this repertoire.”

Dance Journal, Hong Kong

“Lively and entertaining, this ensemble piece shows the company in sharp form.”

South China Morning Post, Hong Kong

What is Oriental? What is not Oriental? Who makes the definition? Why do some “Orientals” resent to be labeled as oriental whereas some cannot stand to be left out?

By doing and “undoing” some of the kitsch oriental cliché, exhausting exotic elements such as Earth, Water, Wind and Fire and the visually stunning “display” of the Five Elements, the performance is a magical mystery tour through nature’s four seasons to appropriate the “west-meet-east” pleasures.
