The Poetic dance “The Journey of a Legendary Landscape Painting” inspired by a well-known Song Dynasty painting, A Panorama of Rivers and Mountains, and performed on the CCTV Spring Festival Gala for the Year of the Tiger—it quickly became an internet sensation.
It is understood that the national tour of “The Journey of a Legendary Landscape Painting” has started this year. Among them, on Jun 9th to 12th, “The Journey of a Legendary Landscape Painting” will make its debut in Ningbo Cultural Poly Grand Theatre.
The sold-out tickets revealed their popularity, so consequently, extra performances were scheduled for Ningbo.
"Every frame is an ancient painting, and The Vast Land is alive," says a member of the audience after watching the dance drama on the evening of Jun 9th.
The color bluish-green is the soul of the ancient painting, and it is also the visual symbol of the entire dance drama. The eyebrows are sharp, highlighted by red lips and a high bun.
The director visualizes the still pictures and abstract colors into graceful dancers, allowing the audience to see the beauty of "bluish-green" intuitively, and let them travel through the stage and connect works in series, looming and smearing the fate of thousands of years.
