IOC01_15ChineseTheaterChinese Dance Theater (CDT) presents “Dances in Chinese Opera” on Sat., Jan. 31at 7pm, and Sun., Feb. 1, at 2pm. Performances will be held at O’Shaughnessy Auditorium, on the campus of St. Catherine University, 2004 Randolph Ave., St. Paul.

Vibrant costumes, energetic agile movement and professional staging are hallmarks of CAAM Chinese Dance Theater’s Annual Production and School Show. Intended to celebrate the Chinese New Year season CAAM CDT’s 2015 show features dances that are inspired by Chinese legends, bazi gong and classical Chinese dance still enthusiastically performed today. Looking behind the curtain of the multifaceted world of Chinese opera, CAAM CDT will explore its underlying origins in movement and stories with a dazzling display of sleeves, swords, spears and daggers interwoven into a fantastical presentation CDT is known for.

Chinese Dance Theater has built a reputation based on professional choreography and well executed programs.  CDT is also recognized for its inclusive work in the broader community with an extensive outreach in schools and in the community.
Tickets of $15 (preshow) are available online at www.caamcdt.org, or 615-774-0806, or $20 at the door. A special shorter 45-minute matinee performance—ideal for school and group field trips—is available on Tue., Feb. 3 at 9:45am and 11:45 am. Tickets for the shorter performance are $7.

This production is supported by Minnesota State Arts Board Operating Grant, Metropolitan Regional Arts Council Artistic Activity Grant a grant from the Asian Pacific Endowment of the St. Paul Foundation and generous donations and countless hours of volunteers from the CAAM Chinese Dance Theater community.
