Under Siege – Yang Li-Ping
The famous Chinese Choreographer Yang Li-Ping brings us the successful performance “Under Siege” that was exhibited in London last October and got both the audience and critics adored reviews.
Ambition. Loyalty. Treason and internal love stands in the beating heart of this story, known also as “FAREWELL MY CONCUBINE” that reveals the bloody story of the battle between Han and Choo kingdom’s militaries, which changed the face of China’s history and was translated and immortalized into many Operas, Music, Literature and Theater, but for the first time it is performed in a contemporary large scale version, in a breath taking creation that combines Contemporary Dance, Hip-Hop, Opera and Live Music.
Oscar and Bapta winners, Tim Yip from Hong Kong and the international Artist Bay-Li Liyo, gathered forces and designed an astonishing stage, and the participating team- together with Beijing Opera’s Soloists, Hip-Hop Dancers, Contemporary Musicians and Dancers- Is an amazing revelation.
