Over the twenty plus years since she started Blanca Li Dance Company, the choreographer and performer Blanca Li has created works that cross all dance mediums. The 1999 Macadam Macadam played with hip hop, skateboarders and BMX on a half-pipe ramp. Her 2013 piece Robot featured a “smart robot” who danced alongside humans. In addition to her company work, Li has also done choreography for Beyoncé, Daft Punk, Paul McCartney, Michel Gondry and Pedro Almodóvar—conceiving of a particularly memorable performance of The Pointer Sisters’ “I’m So Excited” in the director’s comedy of the same name—and, she has directed five films herself. Needless to say, she is a widely known artistic figure in European circles.
