Writing on the Great Wall
"My paternal grandparents left their homeland in China in search of a better life. Choreographing this piece reconnected me to my ancestry and racial heritage. Writing on the Great Wall is my tribute to Chinese calligraphy (which dates back over 4000 years). My choreography is inspired by the fantastic images that are created whenever brush hits paper in the making of the writing that is part word, part picture."
—David Hochoy, DK Artisitic Director
The music for this piece is by cellist Yo-Yo Ma and the Silk Road Ensemble.
