Cultures collide, collaborate, in Xucheng, P.R.C.

Lula Washington & Chinese colleagues and hosts

In the arts funding world, they call it “cultural exchange.” In the real world, we call it the love and mutual respect that flows between artists. Here, where the bare foot meets the marley floor, artists mash up and collaborate.

Two Chinese choreographers, Ma Bin from Hainan Island and Tong Wei from Hebei, put their moves on the women of Lula Washington Dance Theatre. The results are in the slide show below, as well, as the mad dash of post-performance picture taking.

That’s a whole lotta love .. er… cultural exchange.

Spotted in the audience, in the gauji ganbu (high-level cadre) section, an Los Angeles-based dance critic.
