Guangdong Song & Dance Ensemble: Dance Drama The Past of Shawan


Date: Sept 1-2 - 7:30 pm

Venue: National Centre for the Performing Arts

The Past of Shawan is a full-length original dance drama that takes place in the ancient town of Shawan in Guangdong during the 1930s. Centered on the three eminent He family brothers who are regarded as the heirs of Guangdong music, the drama revolves around the musical spirit passed down the generations. This is seen in the classical composition, "Dragon Boat Racing", in which dance elements are deployed to reveal the development of this legendary tale. Lyrical and lively dance segments present a love story of classic Guangdong music. An engrossing storyline, a novel storytelling format, fluid dance performances, exquisite choreography, heartwarming musical classics and a colorful stage set combine to present the audience with a splendid and inspiring epic of Guangdong music.
