Wisconsin State Journal spotlights Li Chiao-Ping Dance

January 29, 2020

UW-Madison’s Li Chiao-Ping and her dance company, Li-Chiao Ping Dance (LCPD), were recently featured in the Wisconsin State Journal.

Li is a Vilas Research Professor with the School of Education’s Dance Department and is the founder of the LCPD. 

While UW-Madison’s Chazen Museum of Art has always showcased art from faculty, its 50th anniversary celebration is drawing art and performance from faculty across the entire university to reflect the evolution of disciplinary art.

Li, who has been performing modern dance in Madison for over 25 years, will be dancing with her company throughout the museum’s galleries. 

“There’s not always been a sense of welcome into that kind of space,” Li tells the State Journal. “So I was really excited that culture is changing.”

She explained that those same changes are happening at museums around the world, like the Tate Modern in London and New York’s Museum of Modern Art. 

The 70-minute performance, titled “Dancing the Chazen,” will include solo, duet, and ensemble pieces, choreographed and directed by Li. 

“It’s an important statement that dance is seen as a contemporary art form next to the other fine arts — that we’re being represented,” She said. 

“Dancing the Chazen” is free and open to the public. LCPD will perform excerpts from “Dancing” on Friday, Jan. 31 at 6:30 p.m. The complete performance will start at 6 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 1 and will be followed by a reception and talk-back in the Chazen lobby.
