The Legend of the White Snake is a well-known Chinese tale which has been adapted many times in various forms of art on stage, screen and TV. Its heroine Lady White awakening consciousness, pursuit of freedom, and struggle against bondage, has been inspiration for generations of creators and audiences alike.
Our ballet/dance version of White Snake attracts a star team of great artists from China and the world. By integrating ballet, Chinese dance, modern dance, Wushu (martial arts) and other elements such as multimedia technology, it will embody a production of sublime oriental aesthetics and allow today’s audience their own interpretation of this folk legend thousands of years old.
This production contains part of the original White Snake story, but at same time it breaks the shackles of traditional ancient mythology and re-constructs it, giving it a contemporary touch. White Snake, Xu Xian and Fa Hai correspond to contemporary wives, husbands and psychological doctors respectively, while green snake symbolizes the indelible, enlightening and independent consciousness of women.
White Snake will express the love and hatred conflicts between women (Lady White and Xiao Qing), husband (Xu Xian) and psychologist (Fa Hai) in the perspective of women, and exploring the inner world of modern women.
