About the Performance

Premiered: New York City

Meditations of a Drunken Peacock (2001) is a fantasy of musings. Inspired by an 11th century Chinese poem by Su Tung P’o, this piece depicts the poet’s wish to have the moon and flowers as drinking companions. The dancers rise and fall with the elated happiness of the inebriated. While many of H.T. Chen’s works explore more profound themes, Meditations of a Drunken Peacock instead allows the choreographer’s light-hearted side to show.

“H.T. Chen made intoxication an aesthetic pleasure in Meditations of a Drunken Peacock, the charming [work of] H.T. Chen & Dancers.” -Jack Anderson, The New York Times
