We are all trapped in besieged fortresses whereby we are constantly faced with choices and struggles. How we react to these may vary, but this is exactly how the world maintains its bewitching patterns of balance. Although it has been more than 10 years since the dance premiered, time may have withered but the game remains as brilliant and extraordinary…

Cold Arrow – Game of Go (Weiqi) was premiered in Beijing in 2006.  This work is rich in Chinese cultural imagery and served as a dynamic debut for the newly formed BeijingDance/LDTX.  Drawing on the game of Go (weiqi) and inspired the music by the cellist David Darling, the co-founder of the company Li Hanzhong and Executive Artist Director Ma Bo, choreographed the work to reflect the happenings of  life within the squares of the game board, similar to the manoeuvring of people in our everyday life.
