Sang Jijia

Acclaimed as "the most perfect dancer", Sang Jijia was selected by the influential American choreographer William Forsythe to work with him at the Frankfurt Ballet for four years. At 23, Sang won the top prize in the men's section of the 1996 Paris International Modern Dance Competition. He was hailed by the Guangdong province as “Star of the Century” in 1997. At 27, he joined the Rolex Mentor and Protégé Arts Initiative and studied choreography in Germany. Sang’s choreography combines extremely intense physical movement and unique rhythm to create psychological tension and anisotropy. As an internationally renowned choreographer, Sang has choreographed and performed for numerous well-known dance companies in Europe and Asia at their invitation.
