About "Feb. 3rd Sunny"

"Feb. 3rd Sunny" is a modern version of a female dancer’s “A Surprising Dream” (A scene from The Peony Pavilion by Chinese dramatist Tang Xianzu). The dance selects some representative sections from Zhang Yashu's dream. Using contemporary dance techniques, Yashu focuses her narrative on the constant travel between "dream" and "reality". Through the door of dream, she can freely enter into different dimensions of time and space, shuttle between dream and reality, explore herself, explore a female’s consciousness, explore the true meaning of dance as an art, and explore the meaning of life.

February 3rd was a sunny day. The day stood for rebirth and vitality as it was the beginning of spring.

Dream. Everyone has a dream. Dream is what inspires and guides us to the far distance where hope is.

What the producer says:

When feeling lost, look at the way you have come along. Along the way, nothing has ever kept the night from coming. Yet, we know that every night has its dawn. Then why not be brave? No matter how far we go, we will never truly be lost. The road each of us pursues is always built upon our original aspiration. It is the extension of our culture. It is a beautiful dream. We all have our own dreams. We are all dream chasers on the way.
