Continuing the tradition of bringing the worlds performers to its stages, the Carnival Center presents Yin Mei in Nomad: The River. A dancer and choreographer borne of Chinas cultural revolution, Yin Mei combines traditional Asian performance and Western contemporary dance theater to visually re-create societal themes. She has won many awards and accolades for her unique style of interpretation, which the New York Times calls a striking visual sense and an authoritative way with social and literary themes. Nomad is a multimedia dance-theater piece that mingles natural and electronic sounds with light and dance to invoke the imagery of Chinas Yellow River and Indias Ganges.
