Awaken the lost memories deep in the soul
Let the forgotten experience be re-animated

Let the spirit of calligraphy flow in your body
Let your hear t be shadeless and open to

Upon Calligraphy is one of the most popular repertoire of Guangdong Modern Dance Company.
Upon Calligraphy is a poem of movements, which are developed from the stylistic essence of different Chinese scripts. It comprises five dances named after the five different script styles in the Chinese calligraphy. Since the debut performance in 2005, the work has had more than 100 performances all around the world. The work has also won awards for Liu Qi and the Guangdong Modern Dance Company on out standing choreography, lighting design, performance as well as production.
Upon Calligraphy has been one of Guangdong Modern Dance Company’s most successful productions. The Washington Post describes it as“ full of meditative grace, sharp, cut-crystal physicality and languid dignity.”
