TAIPEI, Taiwan—On Feb. 25 at the Taipei International Convention Center, a roar of cheers came from the full-house audience during the curtain call. In the audience was Ms. Shao, a Chinese artist, who travels frequently across the strait between Taiwan and mainland China.
Good at painting landscapes, flowers, and birds, senior artist Ms. Shao said that she has been painting for 40 years. The costumes in DPA left a deep impression on her. During intermission, Ms. Shao praised the costumes’ colors and the flow of programs.
“The colors were matched wonderfully. I think the colors used were very soft and harmonious." She especially liked the colorful and brisk flowing dresses of the Yi girls in the program Dance of the Yi.
"They dance well, really well."
She said she has seen Chinese classical dance before, but DPA was outstanding because “the whole planning was fantastic and the programs’ order and flow were fabulous. It is nice to have such a performance to promote the Chinese traditional culture.
“Well, the programs were just good. I cannot exactly express why, but they were very attractive, and I wanted to keep on watching.”
According to emcees’ introduction, the three DPA companies are currently in Taiwan, Belgium, and United States as part of its 20-country global tour.
