Photo Flash: First Look at Sadlers Wells' UNDER SIEGE
Renowned Chinese choreographer and dancer Yang Liping presents Under Siege, her stunning vision of the climactic battle between Chu and Han armies; an encounter that changed the course of Chinese history.
This story, celebrated most famously through music, literature and film as Farewell My Concubine, is reimagined and staged by Yang with searing poignancy.
Academy and BAFTA award-winning set and costume designer Tim Yip (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon and Akram Khan's DESH) and artist-designer Beili Liu conjure up visual magic on stage. With a cast of performers who come from styles and traditions as diverse as Peking Opera, hip hop, ballet and contemporary dance, classical and folk music, this unique piece of dance theatre is an unforgettable experience.
Performances continue through 5 November at 7:30pm. To book tickets: https://secure.sadlerswells.com/production/44164
