Yang Liping (L) 

‘Pingtan Impression’ is Yang Liping’s first work on a maritime theme. With its unique dance language, simple but refreshing, it combines inspiration drawn from local cultures, histories, humanism, seascapes and cross-strait communication.

Featuring Pingtan’s traditional folk culture, the 120-minute-long play consists of four acts, namely, Island of Fairyland, Life in Fairyland, Foreign Invasion, Peace and Prosperity.

It tells a legendary love story of how a couple on the Island of Kylin (another name of Pingtan), fall in love and lead the islanders to jointly fight against a natural disaster and foreign invasion in pursuit of a better life, all with the help of Mazu, the goddess of the sea.

The play is a vivid retelling of the origins of Austronesian language and culture, Pingtan rattan exercises, the dragon and lion dance, Mazu beliefs and customs.
