Feng Ye Dance Theater and guest performers from Jin Xing Dance Theatre present Dance With Nature at Fort Mason Center For Arts & Culture. Dance With Nature is a modern dance show that explores the ancient Chinese Five-Elements Theory and how the Five Elements affect everything in the rotation of the universe. Dance With Nature also seeks to inspire audiences to cherish and protect nature as humanity’s common homeland.
Ancient Chinese culture revered the Five Elements (metal, wood, water, fire, and earth) as the basic building blocks of the universe. Chinese beliefs from early times attribute the interactions between the elements as the cause of development for everything in the universe.
