Blanca Li presents her show Goddesses and Demonesses for the first time in the United States, on March 30th until April 1st.

Contemporary dancer-choreographer Blanca Li and Bolshoi Ballet principal dancer Maria Alexandrova conjure mythological figures in a new evening-length work that has its U.S. premiere at New York City Center. Drawing on Greek mythology and the contrasting languages of classical ballet and contemporary dance, Li and Alexandrova explore the dual nature of feminity, transforming into archetypes ranging from nurturing mothers to femme fatales.

Like the great Greek gods of Antiquity, these two internationally celebrated dance goddesses perform with superhuman strength, continually transforming themselves into their opposites until good and evil, kindness and cruelty are as difficult to separate as Siamese twins. Evoking the same paradoxes existing in life on earth, the goddesses of dance battle each other with fierce fury, empower each other with their joy and love, trick each other with great glee, eye each other with equal doses of trust and suspicion while creating chaos and harmony as they winkingly toy with human destiny. To experience one of the world’s most versatile choreographers and spellbinding modern dancers, Blanca Li, perform with the Bolshoi Ballet’s most adventurous étoile is to enter a world of the unexpected in which two independent forces of nature unite in an always surprising, but singular vision.
