GDC Presents “I Am Here” at the Capital One Hall

“I Am Here” will be comprised of three World Premier pieces choreographed by GDC Artistic Director, Shu-Chen Cuff. First, the title piece, “I Am Here” in which Shu-Chen, as a 1st generation immigrant from Taiwan to the U.S., delves into her personal experience of the desire, dreams, struggles, opportunities, and celebration of immigrating to the United States. “For this work, while it tells my story, I also wanted our patrons to have an opportunity to hear the stories of other 1st generation immigrants from different countries. So we included the words and stories of other immigrants and weaved them into a multi-discipline collaboration with renowned and innovative kinetic sculpture artist and educator, Kevin Reese who currently has over 190 sculpture installations in 30 states throughout the country.” says GDC Artistic Director Shu-Chen Cuff. Second, “A Cup of Tea” is an Asian culturally influenced work with live music accompaniment by Chinese Dulcimer musician, Chao Tian in which Shu-Chen delves into the culture and philosophy of the Chinese tea ceremony and reveals that the tea ceremonies and rituals contain an adoration of the beautiful among the sordid facts of everyday life, as well as refinement, an inner spiritual content, humility, restraint and simplicity through dance. Third, “A New Day”, a contemporary ballet with a fun, light-hearted ode to Mozart’s humor and playful score to encourage, inspire, and motivate everyone to have a positive attitude and energy to face whatever the challenges come at us. Come join us for a special celebration and a unique cultural experience!
This production is supported by the Virginia Commission for the Arts, and ArtsFairfax.

Please Support our 7-8-9 Fundraising Drive! Together! We can keep the Curtain Up!

We need your help raising $7,000 by 8/9… Thus, 7-8-9!

It’s been a very busy and exciting 2021 – 2022 season at GDC…  We’ve completed some wonderful performances including our season opening production  “Perfect 10 +” in which we collaborated with FIT (Fashion Institute of Technology, NY) at the Capital One Hall.  We presented “Look Beyond” at the Atlas INTERSECTIONS Festival.  We were thrilled and honored to create and perform “Aspire” for A Celebration of “Buoyant Force”, a magnificent 50 foot tall steel sculpture created by Sue Wribcan which is installed at the Reston Town Square Park. We were especially proud to perform at the Smithsonian National Zoo in Celebration of the 50th Anniversary of the first two adorable pandas arrival in DC.

In addition to these great events and more, we had the absolute pleasure of bringing our “The Golden Time” to the Reston Multicultural Festival and Taiwanese Association of America Greater Washington Chapter’s Gala.

At GDC, we pour our heart and soul into every production. We create to impact, inspire, and brighten lives.  We have a tremendous passion and love for what we do. We are excited to announce that we will be returning to Capital One Hall to open our 2022 – 2023 season. At this very special evening, we will share a full evening length innovative production of “Emergence” in which we will have the privilege of collaborating with world renowned mobile sculpture artist, Kevin Reese in sharing with the audience our brand new work “I Am Here” – we use this unique collaboration of kinetic sculptures and dance to delve into immigrants’ experience of the desire, dreams, struggles, opportunities, and celebration of their immigration to this country. We are also extremely excited to announce our collaboration with acclaimed musician, Chao Tian, who will create and perform an original score for the new work, “A Cup of Tea”, part of our “Emergence”production.

The funds raised during our 7-8-9 Funding Drive ($7,000 by 8/9) will help us cover the production costs of our exciting 2022-2023 season, keeping our artists working and creating to bring excellence in performing arts to the community.
