Divine Performing Arts Set to Grace Canada’s Stages

Posted by Author on January 2, 2009

By Madalina Hubert, Epoch Times staff, Dec 31, 2008 –

In times of political and economic uncertainty, it is often to the arts that people turn in the search for hope and solace. With Divine Performing Arts (DPA) coming to the nation’s capital on January 2, Canadians will have the opportunity to forget their worries and immerse themselves a profound and uplifting show.

With its mission to present works embodying the “sublime beauty” of China’s traditional culture, the New York-based DPA has been praised for its ability to portray the essence of the 5,000-year culture as well as for its high calibre performances.

On December 19, DPA’s three dance companies and two live orchestras performed simultaneous shows in Atlanta, Philadelphia and Fort Lauderdale, beginning a world tour that will take them to 80 cities on four continents.

In Canada, Divine Performing Arts New York Company will present all-new performances in Ottawa, Kitchener/Waterloo, Toronto and Montreal in January, while returning to play venues in the west in April.

Acclaimed in the past by numerous Canadian artists, celebrities and politicians that included the likes of celebrated National Ballet soloist Vanessa Harwood, figure skater Elvis Stojko and former Secretary of Asia-Pacific David Kilgour, DPA has also received warm greetings from Prime Minister Stephen Harper.

In a letter this year, the PM commended the performance company for the “intricate costumes, brilliant choreography and outstanding musical compositions”.

In his “warm welcome,” Mayor of Ottawa Larry O’Brien said he is pleased that Ottawa has again been selected as one of the Canadian cities “where performing arts will serve as a vehicle to increase public awareness of the important contributions which Chinese culture, its languages and civilization have made to Canadian multiculturalism.

“This world-class production, which will play to an Ottawa audience of more than 8,000 guests in the National Arts Centre’s Southam Hall, is a unique opportunity as well for Canada’s citizens of Chinese ancestry and the broader population to come together via satellite with other Chinese communities in North America, Europe, Asia and Australia to be entertained by internationally acclaimed Chinese performers including talented artists from the West.”

Governor General Michaelle Jean and Jason Kenney, Minister of Citizenship, Immigration, and Multiculturalism also praised the beautiful performances and rich portrayal of Chinese culture, as well as the promotion of Canadian democratic and multicultural values…….
