Inspired by the Silk route
Weaving a story of heritage, China’s Gansu opera house recently showcased a performance inspired by the ancient silk route. The troupe staged a performance that showcased their martial arts and sword wielding prowess. The group, from Dunhuang, used traditional instruments like Pipa and Guzheng in the performance.
Talking about the highlight of the show, Peng Deming, the art director of the show said, “The main highlight of the show is that it has been prepared with Dunhuang and the Silk Road in the backdrop. Added to this we have specially prepared two Indian songs to express our love and respect for India.”Talking about his experience in India Deming said, “This is my first visit to India and people have been very cooperative with us. They have supported us in every big and small thing.”
The troupe has performed in 20 countries, Peng said that the group has been warmly received everywhere,” I personally feel that art, music and dance are the common languages of the world. Maybe we have different artistic methods to express but we all are one. Our attempt is to link the world with our performance and to display our culture, music, tradition and diversity.”
