The Sound Of Yunnan
$75 For 1 people
The large derivative ecological singing and dancing set “The Sound Of Yunnan”, is the sister of the original singing and dancing set “Dynamic Yunnan”. The show was premiered on May 7, 2009 in Kunming.From May 2016,“The Sound Of Yunnan” daily shows at Lijiang Yunling theater.
The show is created by Yang Liping, a famous dance artist. It is an understatement to say she is the reigning queen of dance in China, a gift from God to the land of Yunnan. The Sound Of Yunnan is the most ancient sound,is the sound of nature. The Sound Of Yunnan is the sound of river flowing, the sound of river swelling. It is also the sound of wind, thunder, lightning, insects and birds, chicken and dog. As Yunnan folk saying goes: every leaf in Yunnan will dance, every stone in Yunnan will sing, even the sound of the wings of the butterfly is the rhythm. The Sound Of Yunnan is the sound made by people who live in the nature.In Yunnan,people will sing when birth,become old,get sick,death,even in the lawsuit. The Sound Of Yunnan is not just for the eye, but also for the ear. It use the world's most primitive percussion instruments including bowls, bamboos, bells and drums of all sizes.
In the chapter “Fetal tone”,use the bowl as a kind of musical instrument. This is a kind of initiative. It is because the sound of the bowl is the resonance of the heart and heart. It is the fetal tone of every new life in the womb.In the chapter “Give a birth”, They use a unique percussion instrument in Yunnan,when a woman gives birth, villagers come together and play the drum to help her. In the chapter "Sun Shower", a group of young women use round bamboo sieves to winnow grains. The sounds of a drizzle and then of a shower are produced by sifting. “Tigers and Tigresses” are childishly playful. The “Strange Birds” offers plenty of laughter besides imaginative ways to recreate sounds. Another chapter shows that many instruments are readily fabricated on the side of the field with improvisation. Roots, stems, branches, leaves, flowers, fruits, seeds of plant and even sickle hoes, pots and pans, water tankers, who can make a sound are likely to become instruments. Then the show reproduces the scene of Tea Horse Road. “Drunken Drums” brings the performance to a rousing crescendo, reminds one of drunken fist, the kungfu move popularized by Jackie Chan.
Speaking of the dancers, unlike professional performers who inhabit the parts at best, these young men and women live the parts. They were plucked from mountains and rice fields. When they dance, it's not part of their job, but part of their lives. They are living out their dreams and joys and frustrations right there on the stage. The raw energy they exude is so infectious you cannot but become part of them./uploads/main/litimg/2019-04-26/5cc25f0472642.jpg /uploads/main/litimg/2019-05-06/5ccfd74c22789.jpg,/uploads/main/litimg/2019-05-06/5ccfd74c232de.jpg,/uploads/main/litimg/2019-05-06/5ccfd74c23903.jpg,/uploads/main/litimg/2019-05-06/5ccfd74c243a7.jpg,/uploads/main/litimg/2019-05-06/5ccfd74c249c0.jpg,/uploads/main/litimg/2019-05-06/5ccfd74c2554b.jpg,/uploads/main/litimg/2019-05-06/5ccfd74c2611f.jpg,/uploads/main/litimg/2019-05-06/5ccfd74c26cab.jpg 75,75,75,75,75,75,75,75,75,75 90,90,90,90,90,90,90,90,90,90
