The Ringling Welcomes Yin Mei, Peony Dreams: On the Other Side of Sleep

Coconut Telegraph

SRQ DAILY SATURDAY PERSPECTIVES EDITION SATURDAY JAN 11, 2020

The John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art welcomes Yin Mei, Peony Dreams: On the Other Side of Sleep to its Art of Performance series. Created and choreographed by Yin Mei, an artist of the Chinese diaspora who has been part of the New York dance scene since the 1900s, this new dance theater piece for five dancers melds themes from the iconic Chinese literary work The Peony Pavilion and Yin Mei’s own life experience as a teenage government dancer during the Chinese Revolution. Highly visual and referencing a dense collection of letters she wrote to her family over two decades, the work is a dance painting that occupies the space between truth and dreams. The boundary-defying new work of dance-theater will be presented January 17 and 18 at 7:30 pm in the Historic Asolo Theater.
