Artistic Director / Choreographer: Po-Cheng Tsai

​​Led by Taiwanese choreographer Po-Cheng Tsai, B.DANCE is now one of the internationally emerging contemporary dance companies. Since its creation in 2014, B.DANCE has already performed in Germany, the Czech Republic, Spain, Israel, Denmark, Italy, Switzerland, China, Hong Kong, the United Kingdom and France, where it recently toured for two months in 2022. Several times awarded at international choreographic competitions, Po-Cheng Tsai has also choreographed for renowned dance companies such as Introdans, Tanz Luzerner Theatre, Gauthier Dance, Cloud Gate 2 and Bern Tanzcompagnie.
The Taiwanese artist develops a unique choreographic language and style that combines traditional Asian movements, martial arts and contemporary dance. He pushes back the boundaries to achieve an aesthetic that incorporates oriental mysticism and fantasy into theatrical, physical and moving pieces, which are accessible and inspiring to all audiences. Po-Cheng Tsai was awarded in 2018 Choreographer of the Year by the German magazine Tanz. In 2020, he also received the prize for choreographic revelation at the 57th French Palmarès of the Prix du Syndicat professionnel de la critique Théâtre, Musique et Danse.

Season highlights

In November 2022, in Taipei, B.DANCE will present its new piece THE CELL. This creation by Po-Cheng Tsai questions the various symbols of the cell and the relationship of the individual to the group.
Po-Cheng Tsai will then be a guest artist at Bühnen Bern to choreograph Bach Recomposed for the Bern Ballet, which will premiere on 5 February 2023.
Finally, the project B.OOM by B.DANCE will come back in 2023 Initiated by the company in 2016, this platform aims to strengthen cultural exchanges on the international dance scale. Within this framework, five artists from five different countries – including a dancer from the company – will be invited to present their works in Taiwan.

Press talks about it

“This is a great discovery of this Avignon festival, a real success of Les Hivernales. This Taiwanese choreographer, with his independent company B.Dance, will have to be followed closely.”

Jean Couturier, Danser Canal Historique

“We are experiencing the dance of the world, which has spanned the entire history of mankind. The dancers’ involvement is fascinating, on a stretched rope from the first to the last second. And when the show stops, when the storm is over, we start breathing again.”

Laurence Houot, Franceinfo

“It is a remarkable experience to watch dance at this level in the intimate space of Dance Base’s Studio 1, where every small movement can be fully appreciated, and where the dancers really have nowhere to hide. Luckily, these dancers have no need to hide.”

Robert Dow, The Wee Review

“What strikes most here, however, is the energy. At the end, the rousing applause is as much for the athleticism as the aesthetics… Po-Cheng is a force to be reckoned with.”
