“A blossom of color, energy and motion, like endlessly proliferating forces of cosmic energy,” – New York Times
Nai-Ni Chen blends the freedom of the America spirit with the grace and splendor of the Asian aesthetic. The company makes its NextMove Dance debut with the Philadelphia premiere of A Quest for Freedom, the true story of Nai-Ni Chen (artistic director/choreographer) emigrating from Taiwan to New York. This full-length work traces Chen’s journey. It is set to live music by The Ahn Trio – Juilliard alumni, Korean-born sisters – featuring Angella (violin), Maria (cello), and Lucia (piano). The Ahn Trio is known for its previous collaborations with dance companies including Parsons Dance.
Attend a Post-Performance Chat after every Friday 8PM and Saturday 2PM show. Meet the company, ask questions, and get the scoop on the what’s and the why’s of the creative process.

"...at Club Helsinki Hudson, a packed house was treated to a thrilling program of risk-taking, rule-breaking music by the Ahn Trio of Korean sisters, Angella on violin, Lucia on piano, and Maria on cello. —demonstrated that classical skills can, in the right hands, be applied to contemporary music with dazzling effect." -imby.com
"There is great precision and composure, things that favor the excellent sound response and the speed of pace and atmospheric changes, but everything happens with great naturalness, regardless of the "genre" of the song played from time to time...when there is originality and excellence, the audience responds to it,"

While people often give children picture albums, the Ahn sisters wanted to give Lucia’s son Blue a musical album. Says Ahn Trio “BLUE is a musical diary of our past and present. We celebrate being a family of music lovers and pay respect to artists and musical pioneers who have inspired us. Memories of hanging out with Prince at Paisley Park and playing Purple Rain, working with Pat Metheny on the piece Yuryung he wrote for us, performing Skylife at President Obama’s White House. Performing at TEDWomen and meeting extraordinary female leaders from around the world, falling in love with Brazil and the bossa nova, exploring new colors with the great jazz musician Nguyên Lê from Paris, long-time collaborations with Kenji Bunch a Juilliard class mate, a new collaboration with Hyung-ki Joo of Igudesman & Joo. Jimi Hendrix’ Little Wing arranged by D.D. Jackson fit perfectly into our vision for the CD, ‘She’s walking through the clouds, with a circus mind that’s running wild . . . fly on little wing.’ Not only does it sum up how we feel about Blue, but how we feel about our art. May we all fly on.”
Eleven tracks include Prince’s iconic Purple Rain, Pat Metheny’s Yuryung, Jimi Hendrix’ Little Wing, Hyung-ki Joo’s original works Lina’s Waltz and Lullaby for Leo, Antônio Carlos Jobim’s Insensatez. All works are written or especially arranged for the Trio. For the cover, the Trio collaborated with a world-renowned Belgian designer Christian Loos (among numerous other awards, his work was chosen as one of the 20 Most Genius Advertising Campaigns Ever by La Repubblica), who has also designed cellist Maria Ahn’s David Bowie cover album, Je T’aime Bowie in 2014. BLUE was recorded at New York City’s historic Avatar Studios by Dave Darlington, and mastered by Vlado Meller Mastering.
