Xie Xin Dance Theater
About the Company
Located between ancient folk art and imported ballet, contemporary dance is a very young art in China. However, recently, with the emergence of new companies, it has become exciting. Xie Xin and her dance company founded in 2014 are playing an innovative role in this development.
The young choreographer previously danced with Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui and continuously seeks exchanges with international artists for her own company. The striking style of Xie Xin presents expansive and intensive movements, carried out with great elegance but with a deep spiritual connection.
The popular choreographer has created works for almost all contemporary dance companies in China. He has won several awards, including the public prize at the International Choreographic Competition in Hannover in 2015. In May 2019 he will be a resident artist at the Hesse State Ballet.

As human beings, one of the reasons we share memories is that we are at the same time in the same space, which creates a special bond. Without this, we are only living parallel lives in different spaces.
