Location Info:Huntington Library, Art Collections and Botanical Gardens
San Marino, CA 91108
Known for its expansive gardens, mesmerizing library and accessible art, the Huntington is not known for presenting dance. All the same, it's the setting for the only SoCal performance of Beijing-based choreographer Gu Jiani, who, with dancer Wang Xuanqi, arrives on a U.S. tour that includes San Francisco, Seattle and New York. Trained in both classical Chinese dance and Western modern dance, the two performers interweave their dual training in Gu's Right and Left, moving in and out of projected shadow and light to a patchwork of electronic music, compositions by Chopin and the experimental acoustics of Dawn of Midi.
