Choreography by Janis Claxton for Janis Claxton Dance and BeijingDance/LDTX

SHIFT (song of change) was created as a unique collaboration between these two companies especially for  the opening performance of the Beijing Dance Festival on July 22 2012.

As part of the British Council’s UK Now program, SHIFT was performed in the program SONGS, a tribute to the late composer Henryk Gorecki and also included Janis Claxton’s seminal work ‘songs are sung’ and a work for by LDTX resident choreographers Li Hanzhong and Ma Bo.
