Beijing 9 Contemporary Dance Company was established in 2010, dedicated to combining contemporary dance with Chinese elements/the localization of contemporary dance in China. It is the only dance company in China that has its own small theatre. Over the past five years, the company has produced over ten excellent works, which focus on the relationship between human life and the society.
These works try to study the relationship between human conduct and life through the free expressions and movements of contemporary dance, thus exploring the potential demand of people in modern life.
Beijing 9 Contemporary Dance Company has been dedicated to innovating and making a change in their creation. The company seeks crossover cooperation between different art forms by gathering a group of talented independent artists. In this way, the company explores special body language that embodies contemporary Chinese cultural awareness and presents it on the stage.
Beyond this vale of tears, There is a life above, Unmeasured by the flight of years; And all that life is love. (James Montgomery)
“trans la valo”是“越过溪谷”的世界语翻译。世界语(Espranto)是波兰籍犹太人柴门霍夫博士发明的语言，其目的旨在创建一种易学的中性语言， 能够超越民族，促进不同地区、语言不通的人们之间的理解，推动世界和平。“Espranto”也被译为“抱有希望的人”，这是柴门霍夫博士于1887年6月26日出版第一本详细讲解世界语的书-《第一本书》-时用的笔名。
Beyond this vale, There is a life above, Unmeasured by the flight of years; And all that life is love. (James Montgomery) Beyond the vale, both in time and space, is the metropolis. The city is a matrix where life is continually destroyed and generated. Modern cities are made of millions and millions of tons of steel and concrete… they can be dangerous, overwhelming and asphyxiating. They can swing silently over our heads, and then suddenly hit, grab, entangle and swallow us up. They can be unpredictable, but at the end of the day, they are made by and for human beings. From the beginning of time to current day, we create a space that we believe is best for us and the society we live in. A crowd will always be stronger than an individual. When a cohesive group of people deal with the unpredictability of urban spaces, it always finds a way to dodge any difficulties it may encounter. Life has and always will defeat death. The history of evolution has taught us that life will not be contained. Life breaks free; it expands to new territories and crashes through barriers, dangerously, frantically, even painfully. ‘trans la valon’ is the Esperanto translation of ‘beyond the vale’. Esperanto is a language developed by L. L. Zamenhof whose goal was to create an easy-to-learn and neutral language that transcends nationality and would foster peace and international understanding between people with different regional and/or national languages. "Esperanto" also translates as "one who hopes", the pseudonym under which L. L. Zamenhof published the first book detailing Esperanto, the Unua Libro, on July 26, 1887.
