"Muses in the Scroll" Outdoor Audiovisual and Dance Theatre
Hong Kung Temple Square - Outdoor Performance
“From where the dancing silhouettes against the moonlight came from?”
The fire that causes destructions is the same that brings hope to all lives.
A fire had destroyed the many scrolls of vivid drawings and the lifetime efforts of a painter. Ruthless the fire had been, it nonetheless burnt down and released the confined muses from these paper cages to dance freely in the air along with the heavenly breezes. The muses then eventually settled down in this mundane world as beautiful ladies depicted on the wall paintings inside the Dunhuang Grottoes.
Later in a Grottoes trip, the painter finally met his muses again. Charmed by the various dance postures and expressions of the muses on the wall paintings, he was relieved from his loss in the fire. He saw the spirits of his drawings flow beyond the scrolls and believed true beauty lies in sharing the fascinating art with the world and taking the art into one’s heart.
Arts for All
Offering a surreal and vibrant feast for the eyes, the audiovisual and dance theatre will depict the ancient Dunhuang legends under the night and bring its muses to life. The muses shall dance their way into the moonlight and unveil the mysteries of the captivating stories on the Dunhuang wall paintings.
The piece features both traditional and modern elements of Chinese dances and music and recaptures the legendary Dunhuang scene with new art media. Experience the grandeur and glory brought forth by the multi art forms at the Hong Kung Temple Square!
