Notes: "During the East-West Cold War, modern dance became a converged site of immigration, cultural production, and theoretical practice. Within this context, Chinese immigrant artist Al Huang invented a Taoist Nirvana of natural flora and fauna through an (a)historical "China" motif that he called an "East-West synthesis." As dance concepts are often contingent upon historical phenomena, I will argue that Huang's East-West synthesis is a byproduct of Cold War mentality to signify progress without change. This icon of progress looms large in Langer's theory of virtual powers and dynamic images that are modeled after ballet/modern dances."--P. 197.
