    <p>Philein/ZiRu Productions and LanTian Theatre present</p> <p>Zero Hour by Philein Wang</p> <p>December 16-18, LanTian Theatre </p> <p>Featuring the collaborative works of Chinese American artists: Keith Weng (photographer), Areta Wang (visual artist),</p> <h2>Simon Ting (percussionist),</h2> <p>“The show is replete with Wang's artistic talent and understanding of her culture” - Han Bingbin, China Daily</p> <p>“...Beautiful...focused and vigorous performance.” - Rita Felciano, Danceview Times </p> <p>“Wang herself is a force of nature, raising money, creating projects and sharing the stage with artists of every stripe. And that alone is well worth a look.”</p> <h2>- Nancy Pellegrini, TimeOut Beijing</h2> <p>Now, in its second year of performance, Zero Hour will return to Beijing this December. Philein/Ziru Productions in partnership with the LanTian Theatre present a multimedia and multicultural experience for all ages. Zero Hour—a mixture of cutting-edge modern dance, music and art inspired by Chinese heritage and American tradition—is returning to the capital this year with an expanded storyline, new original works of dance and music and a cast of twelve dancers from the US and China.</p> <p>Conceived, choreographed, written, and directed by Artistic Director, Philein Wang, Zero Hour is the story of one Chinese-American's struggle for identity told through the "zero hours" of youth vis-à-vis the dilemmas faced in love, career choices, value systems, and in the ever-changing relationships with family. Inspired by Wang’s own life experiences, the China World Journal calls Zero Hour "a sincere and honest portrayal of the global Chinese citizen." Presented in collaboration with the work of four Chinese American artists—photographer Keith Weng, visual artist Areta Wang, percussionist Simon Ting, and costume designer Karen Lin—Wang blends poetry, photography, painting, and live percussion with Tiger Hip Hop, her unique motion style.</p> <p>The protagonist of Zero Hour is a young Chinese mother immigrating to America with newborn son. Audiences follow the relationship between mother and son as she watches him navigate the pitfalls of growing up within the challenging duality of Chinese heritage and American tradition. Tiger Hip Hop, a dynamic fusion of modern dance, hip hop, Shaolin-style martial arts, Wushu, and Tai Chi, is the perfect medium to express the joys, sorrows and frustrations that come with cultural assimilation.</p> <p>Fast on the heels of a sold out encore performance in California, Zero Hour is a compelling multimedia and multidimensional experience that pushes beyond the bounds of expectation to reach new limits of imagination, art, and expression.</p> <p>Zero Hour returns to Beijing at the LanTian Theatre, December 16-18. Tickets are 100-150RMB. For more information about Zero Hour, or Philein/Ziru Productions, please check out their website at www.ziruproductions.com.
