About World in the City: Chinese Sword Play

The use of weaponry in Chinese dance, theater and martial arts is rooted in ancient warfare. The beauty, strength and grace of these movements are now displayed only on theatrical stages and for exercise. Bringing together key New York teachers, performers and practitioners, “Chinese Sword Play” showcases the techniques of sabre swords used in dance, tai chi, wushu and Chinese opera. Part performance and part dialogue/discussion, this program brings these four distinct traditions on one stage, giving audiences and artists a rare opportunity to closely compare and contrast these refined forms.
