Yunnan Impression Show (Dynamic Yunnan)
Yunnan Impression Show, also called Dynamic Yunnan, is a grand and unique dance musical that richly depicts the strong flavor of the life of ethnic minorities in Southwest China. It tells audience about the universe, nature, culture, the pursuit for the origins of life, the praise of life and the wish for everlasting life.
The Yunnan Impression Show strikes an extraordinary contrast between the past and present, tradition and modern life. The performance captures the essence of original rural songs and classical folk dances by means of the artistic director's reorganization and recreation, combining beauty of Yunnan ethnic minorities dance and songs with the power of modern stage exhibition. Therefore the richness of the culture of Yunnan minorities is born again on stage with startling effects. The audience will be amazed at the vibrant colors, vivid costumes, flowing dances, and ancient tunes.
This is the first production produced, directed and choreographed by the famous dancer, Yang Liping, one of China's best-known dancers. Twenty years ago, Yang Liping won first prize in a national dance competition by performing her solo dance "The Spirit of the Peacock". Since then she is universally regarded as the "Peacock Princess" in China. She gathered over 60 highly capable aboriginal dancers and singers from the lost corners of the world over several years. These aboriginal performers dance for life. They use the enthusiasm from their hearts, dances from the union of their bodies with nature and natural vigor for celebration to create a powerful artistic force.
