Mission Statement

To promote greater understanding and world peace through multi-media, dance, music productions, and collaborations with artists and dancers worldwide. Through Tiger Hip Hop/Tiger Motion ™, a new form of dance, Philein Wang/ZiRu Productions combines Western and Eastern philosophy, movement, and culture to share with audiences in China, Europe, and the United States.

Description

Philein/ZiRu Productions was founded in 2007 and, since that time, has distinguished itself as an organization that focuses on multi-disciplinary work, collaboration across cultural boundaries, and actively addressing the question of cultural identity. It is a non-profit dance production company (fiscally sponsored by Dancers’ Group) based in the Peninsula/South Bay Area with a mission to create an artistic base for the Chinese-American diaspora. It produces local and international shows using collaboration as a means to build a cross-cultural bridge between the United States and the Greater China region (China, Taiwan and Hong Kong).

Philein/Ziru Productions have produced a total of seven tours and exchanges between the United States and China. The company's centerpiece is Wang's own dance form, Tiger Hip Hop™/Tiger Motion, which is a highly stylized fusion of modern/ballet, Tai Chi, Wushu, Shaolin Style Tiger Claw, yoga, and hip hop that, in itself highlights the intensely diverse cultural influences in the company. The company also provides free master dance classes for colleges and underprivileged youths to share with us the freedom and joy which comes from the blending of multi-disciplinary arts.
