“The company suggested Minus 7. It is a very challenging piece for classically trained dancers and a very exciting piece,” Wang said. “I was laughing when I saw the piece, dancers inviting audience members. At the beginning the Universal group was worried how Taiwanese audiences would react. I think the audience will really enjoy it.”
Wang admitted that she’s concerned the title of the program, This Is Modern, may turned some balletomanes off, noting that “even friends of mine see the title and they think it’s not ballet,” but she stressed that despite the very modern pieces, the show is definitely one ballet fans will enjoy.
“All three choreographers were classically trained, they all danced with ballet companies before becoming choreographers,” she said. “It’s going to be fun.”
