Yang Liping Contemporary Dance - Under Siege

Expired Offer

PLEASE NOTE THIS OFFER HAS NOW EXPIRED!

More About This Offer

Yang Liping is one of the most famous dancers in mainland China. Her work continues to combine and re-imagine the diversity of the country's contemporary and ancient traditions.

Based on the classcal story Farewell My Concubine, Under Siege is Yang's first modern work as a choreographer, and is a more abstract piece than traditional narrative Chinese dance theatre.

Featuring set and costume by Academy Award-winning designer Tim Yip and lighting by 2013 Knight if Illumination winner Fabiana Piccioli, this work draws inspiration from Chinese opera, modern dance, martial arts and hip hop. The historic tale is told through its distinctive characters and use of live music, creating a universally dramatic experience which transcends its Chinese roots.
