Work by UW-Madison’s Li Chiao-Ping reviewed by two Pittsburgh publications

November 13, 2019

Performances from UW-Madison’s Li Chiao-Ping, a Vilas Research Professor with the School of Education’s Dance Department, were recently reviewed by two Pittsburgh publications, the Pittsburgh Tatler and Pittsburgh in the Round.  

Both publications detail the performance of “The world as we know it,” a production of Beth Corning and CorningWorks, which featured six female performers, including Li.

This production explored femininity and the ever-present glass ceiling, particularly in the wake of the #metoo movement. In the performance, the six women confront and inventively embrace the standards of history women are regularly forced to accept.

The piece consists of six solo dance performances, which are bound together by interludes featuring the entire ensemble, according to the Pittsburgh Tatler.

Reports Eva Phillips in Pittsburgh in the Round: "Without question, the caliber of performers on the sparse New Hackett Stage is astronomical. These women are not merely champions of their craft — they are uniquely efficacious storytellers and creative prophets, imparting what they have learned and who they are through physical art. ... ‘The World As We Know It’ is a showcase of legacy-level talent and insightfulness. ...Whether it is the moments of meta-commentary provides in the fascinating moments with the Tribe in their oversized suits and their curious designs on life; or the hauntingly direct  vignettes like Li Chiao-Ping’s gorgeously aching, physical soliloquy ‘In Media Res,’ the connectivity and rapturous pulse of the ‘The World as We Know It’ is beyond compare."
