Cultural Exchange

ZiRu Dance has been given its second grant from the California State Department to foster a cultural exchange through movement between Chinese and U.S. choreographers. This year the choreographers will stage and exchange movement that examines the challenges of a tumultuous year.


Two U.S. choreographers and Two Chinese choreographers will be chosen by the end of July 2021. 


Curated by Philein and ZiRu Dance, each piece will examine life in the time of COVID.


The choreographers will collaborate with one another in both the creation and setting of movement resulting in four unique works. 


All four pieces will be presented in the Silicon Valley Dance Festival.
