A trailer for Portraits: China – Profiling the Chinese Dream
Yang Liping brings her creativity to the stage as she guides, nurtures, and polishes the dance and drama performances of China’s ethnic communities. These native communities represent the struggles they have in a world of change, change that wooes the Chinese toward the world of civilization.
Will the Chinese throw away the past? Will the ancient tribes and villages of China disappear in a way similar to America’s natives? And if they do, will their legacy live on in a different way? In museums? In song? In storytelling passed down from one generation to another? Only time knows. Only time will tell.
