For the week's performances, he has also selected his choreographed piece Confucius 2012. He created two images of Confucius onstage that year, one worshipped by people for over 2,000 years, and the other of Confucius himself. Fei says the dance piece is his observation of contemporary people's studies of the ancient Chinese philosopher.

"It is an interesting piece that took me a long time to create, as I thought deeply about Confucius," he says.

In the second half of this week's show, audiences will get a glimpse of Fei's take on Shakespeare's Hamlet, in which he presents the complex state of Hamlet's mind and attitude toward himself. By interpreting Hamlet, Fei tells the dramatic story, full of human emotions, through ballet.

Hamlet was first staged during the National Ballet of China's annual workshop, which was launched in 2010 and aims to inspire and nurture young dancers and choreographers.
