China's most celebrated dancer, Jin Xing (directly translated as "golden star"), and her company Jin Xing Dance Theatre Shanghai, showcase a retrospective of 10 of her best works over the last 25 years, featuring lavish onstage environments and a feast for the senses. Though not actually tango, Shanghai Tango showcases a contemporary Shanghai, a blend of east and west in dance, costumes, and music that mixes passions and cultures from both the past and the future. Jin Xing's courage, fighting spirit, and beautiful artistry have contributed to her great success as a ballerina and owner of China's only independent dance company. Her choreography is graceful, subtle, and filled with visual appeal. Performed to rave reviews in Europe, this event is part of a three-year exchange with arts leaders across the country showcasing Chinese culture.
