Saturday, December 1      DOLCE STIL NOVO, LCPD concert at Masonic Auditorium, Madison, WI
Li Chiao-Ping Dance’s Dolce Stil Novo takes its title from the poetic style of 13th C. Italian writers, like Dante Alighieri, which celebrated the female form, love, and womanhood from a spiritual and idealized perspective. This event features amazing artists together for two shows only on Saturday, Dec. 1--2:30pm and 7pm, including:

Choreography by Li Chiao-Ping; Music by Julia McConahay; Fashion by Sarah Friedland and Emily Popp; Visual Art by Chele Isaac; and Lighting by John Frautschy.

Ms. Li reworks this idea as a choreographic theme to celebrate women in today’s world, navigating conventions of beauty, societal norms, and gender politics.

 LCPD is excited and honored for this opportunity to stand behind this wonderful project - Dancing on the Ceiling: performances by women of a certain age. Artists in other performing fields commonly continue in their careers for many years, but due to the physical rigor of dance, performers are often viewed and valued for their youthful dance technique. These seasoned artists, including Charlotte Adams, Beth Corning, Simone Ferro, Heidi Latsky, Li Chiao-Ping, Deb Loewen, and Endalyn Taylor present the value of time, experience, and dedication to producing skillful performers with nuance and strength. Not “rather than” or “instead of”, these mature dancers “also” have much to offer and this concert makes this point.

LANDED, SEPT. 8       Our LANDED performance on September 8th at Old Dominion University was a huge success--many thanks to the folks at ODU for all their incredible organization and support! Thank you so much!

Landed, a collaboration between choreographer Li Chiao-Ping and visual artist Douglas Rosenberg, is an evening-length, multimedia dance work that investigates the immigrant experience through stories, personal and historical, related to each cast member. This work blends together the abstract and symbolic, with physical expression and spoken word, to form a distillation of journeys, hope, loss, pain, and resilience.

Created with support from The MAP Fund, a program of Creative Capital, primarily supported by the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation. Additional funds come from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.

LCPD dancers Janelle Bentley, Lauren Gibbs, Elisabeth Roskopf, Liz Sexe, and Li Chiao-Ping performed BETWEEN HERE AND THERE (from LANDED) in the American Dance Guild's Festival at the Alvin Ailey Citigroup Theater in NYC. It was a beautiful evening honoring one of the truly great leaders--Martha Myers! It was an amazing event and we were so honored to be invited to be part of it!  Thank you!

Li Chiao-Ping served as a panelist for the McKnight Foundation's Choreographer Fellowships alongside Rennie Harris, Christy Bolingbroke, and Judith Howard.
