Beyond Calligraphy is one of the most popular repertoires of Guangdong Modern Dance Company. It was developed into a complete 2-episode evening program in 2011. Upon Calligraphy, Episode 1, has been one of its most successful productions. Since the debut performance in 2005, it has been performed more than 100 times around the world. It has also won awards for Liu Qi and the Guangdong Modern Dance Company for outstanding choreography, lighting design, performance, and production. Upon Calligraphy is a poem of movements, which is developed from the stylistic essence of different Chinese scripts. It comprises of five dances named after the five different script styles in Chinese calligraphy. The Washington Post describes it as “full of meditative grace, sharp, cut-crystal physicality and languid dignity.”

Episode 2 Ink Wash Landscape, pays homage to the spiritual essence of ink wash painting. The development of linear logic in the original work, which comments on the cold, emotionless mode of communication in the digital era, is resolved in balance and harmony between water and ink.
