LRCCS Noon Lecture Series | Dancing Productive Missteps: the American Dance Festival at China’s Reform Era
Fangfei Miao, dance scholar, choreographer, and dancer, is Assistant Professor in the Department of Dance at the University of Michigan. She received her PhD from UCLA and MFA from the Beijing Dance Academy. Dr. Miao is working on her book manuscript that investigates the productivity of embodied cross-cultural missteps in transforming dance history in China’s Reform Era. Her publications, in both English and Chinese, have featured in Dance Research Journal, Asian Theater Journal, Journal of Contemporary Research in Dance, and Journal of the Beijing Dance Academy. With extensive professional training in both western and Chinese dances, she has toured internationally and staged her choreography in New York City, Los Angeles, Auckland, and Beijing, among others.
