Words from Producer
The dance drama, The Peach Blossom Fan - Xiangjun's Lute is an innovative and cross-border work created collectively by Opera & Dance Theatre of Jiangsu Performing Arts Group Co., Ltd., which has cooperated with senior drama directors, dance directors and drama educators from Hong Kong. It is a crystallization of the cooperation and communication between Jiangsu Province and Hong Kong in the field of culture and art.
The drama tells the feeling of people about the rise and fall of their country through their personal emotions of separations and reunions. The Peach Blossom Fan was created by Kong Shangren three hundred and ten years ago, pushing the legend story writing of the Ming and Qing Dynasties to its peak. For more than three hundred years, The Peach Blossom Fan is based on Kunqu Opera, Peking Opera, and Drama, combining different art forms, and it is deeply loved by its audiences. Then, what different experience will the dance drama The Peach Blossom Fan - Xiangjun's Lute give audiences?
As the director of the drama says: we shall focus on the spirit of the scenarios rather than telling the story in a simple straightforward way; and focus on the imaginary space created by the performers, dance, light, music and sound. Let our audience feel the beauty of this show in our theatre…
The original intention of The Peach Blossom Fan - Xiangjun's Lute is to let audiences feel the beauty of this drama. However, there are several questions appearing with this intention. How can we combine contemporary characters with traditional spirits? How can we achieve cultural construction in the contemporary language situation? How can we tell the Chinese story in "internationalized languages"? How can we embody the cultural confidence in the practical artistic creation? These questions are answered by literary and art workers of Jiangsu in this drama.
It has been a long-cherished wish for us to make an excellent original dance and The Peach Blossom Fan - Xiangjun's Lute will be our new beginning. We wish that everyone who comes to our theatre can feel the beauty of this drama! We wish The Peach Blossom Fan which has three hundred and ten years of history a great success!
