Sunday, September 10, 2017 @ 6:30 pm
Winner of the WENHUA Grand Prize, China's Ministry Of Culture's highest award for Professional Arts, Red Sorghum is a reflection of Shandong's unique culture and the strong character of its people as it delves into the meaning of life, passion, resilience, living life and dying as strong as the liquor made from Old World sorghum cereal grass. The novel was adapted for the big screen by Zhang Yimou in 1987. Combining the novel and the movie, this dance drama shows the villagers' courage and bravery fighting against the Japanese occupation.
Adapted From Nobel Prize Laureate Mo Yan’s Novel Performed by Qingdao Song and Dance Theatre
