Riverdance to tap Poly| Feb. 1-2

“Riverdance,” a theatrical show consisting mainly of traditional Irish music and dance, will be staged at Shenzhen Poly Theater early next year.

With a score composed by Bill Whelan, it originated as an interval performance act during the 1994 Eurovision Song Contest, featuring Irish dancing champions Jean Butler and Michael Flatley. Shortly afterwards, husband and wife production team John McColgan and Moya Doherty expanded it into a stage show, which opened in Dublin in 1995. Since then, the show has visited hundreds of venues worldwide and has been watched by millions of people, making it one of the most successful dance productions in the world.

“Riverdance” is rooted in a three-part suite of baroque-influenced traditional music called “Timedance.” At the time, Whelan and Dónal Lunny composed the music, augmenting the Irish folk band Planxty with a rock rhythm section of electric bass and drums and a four-piece horn section. Whelan had also produced “EastWind,” a 1992 album by Planxty member Andy Irvine with Davy Spillane, which fused Irish and Balkan folk music and influenced the genesis of “Riverdance.”

狂野的脚步节奏,磅礴的气势表达,融合多种新式曲风及乐器的演奏,宛若天籁的凯尔特歌声,简练明净的舞台效果,眼花缭乱的服装造型……所有的元素都被成功的融合重生,碰撞出惊人的艺术火花……令观众着迷的,是以蝴蝶振动翅膀的频率,每秒钟打击地面35下的奇迹;是舞者整体划一,宛若巨浪的踢踏舞步中传达出来的乐观与热情。

《大河之舞》以传统爱尔兰民族特色的踢踏舞为主轴、融合热情奔放的西班牙佛拉明戈舞,并汲取古典芭蕾与现代舞蹈的精髓,共同营造出一场气势如虹、异彩纷呈的绝世舞作。而爱尔兰管弦乐团的演奏及合唱团的天籁美声更是起到了画龙点睛的作用。《大河之舞》是一场力感、质感和美感兼具的百老汇音乐歌舞盛宴。
