The choreographer Xie Xin is one of the rising stars of China’s still young contemporary dance scene. She benefits from the rich heritage of her country’s age-old traditional arts and is equally inspired by the influences of Western dance forms and ways of work. The creation «From IN», with which the artist presents her dance company for the first time in Switzerland, is a fine example of a successful fusion of those resources. The work comes across as a frenzy of contrasts. In ever-new variations and constellations the ensemble whirls around the stage, combining intimate, sparse and incredibly delicate moments with sudden outbursts of energy. At the centre of the work is the human being, the body and the heart, considered by Xie Xin tob e the origin of life. The super-fast, agile dancers reveal the areas of conflict to which we are exposed with our longing for independence in the social mesh of relationships. The encounter with this young Chinese company is intense, meditative and magical – an insider tip!

Xie Xin

Xie Xin focused on dance as a principal subject while still at school. Subsequently she trained in contemporary dance at the Guangdong Dance School. In 2005, she became soloist at the Jin Xing Dance Theatre in Shanghai. Starting in 2011, she was a company member of the TAO Dance Theatre where she quickly became one of its leading dancers. Her first choreographic creations achieved success at several competitions in Europe, such as Hanover and Rome. In 2014, she founded her own company, the Xie Xin Dance Theatre, in Shanghai. In addition, she continues to be a sought-after guest choreographer. Picture: Cao Xuefeng
