DANCE & CIRCUS CHINA

Under Siege

Yang Liping Contemporary Dance

★★★★ Breathtakingly gorgeous.

Financial Times

One of China's most epic stories is reinvented as one of this century's most ravishing spectacles.

Yang Liping soared to national stardom in 1986 and has since become a singular force in Chinese dance, creating striking solos and choreographing lavish ensemble works.

Under Siege sees her teaming up with set and costume designer Tim Yip (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon) to stir up a visual maelstrom of breathtaking imagery.

Yang rewrites the epochal tale known in Chinese opera and lore as Farewell My Concubine with a high-octane mix of performers from ballet, hip-hop, kung-fu and Peking opera. Under Siege is an extraordinary feat of theatre, a visual and kinetic treat that sears the senses.

Beneath thousands of suspended steel blades a climactic battle rages; the Battle of Gaixia will change the course of Chinese history. Two mighty, ambitious warlords stake everything for the ultimate prize. A legendary beauty will prove that love and loyalty outlive death.

 

杨丽萍现代舞剧场

《十面埋伏》

澳大利亚独家演绎

总导演/编导:杨丽萍

美术/服装设计:叶锦添

中国最具有历史性的故事之一,将改编成本世纪最夺目的史诗舞剧。

1986年杨丽萍创作并表演了独舞《雀之灵》,因此一举成名。她用独特的舞蹈语言,在舞台上赋予孔雀丰富的神韵。此后在中国舞蹈界中独树一帜,创造出唯美动人的独舞及华丽的编舞作品。《十面埋伏》中,杨丽萍携手电影《卧虎藏龙》美术服装设计师叶锦添,为该剧打造出惊人的视觉呈现。

在数以千计的悬挂钢刀片下,项羽与刘邦“楚汉相争”在此上演。该舞台剧将背景放在了流传千年的楚汉相争的历史上,将两千年前的一组人物从故事里提炼放在更广阔的时空,刻画其内心冲突与纠葛。杨丽萍以《霸王别姬》为故事蓝本,将芭蕾、嘻哈、功夫及京剧等多种表演形式融入其中。《十面埋伏》现代舞剧场将异常壮观,为您带来视觉盛宴。
