Kunming, Yunnan, China (May 20, 2019) Dynamic Yunnan is a fusion of traditional folk songs and dances set to modern choreography drawn from the rich legends of Yunnan’s ethnic minority populations. There is no central theme other than the cultural celebration, enriched by the colorful traditional costumes. It is a high energy routine that integrates all ages of dancers, themes of nature (sun, moon, rain), young love, a drum dance. It is broken down into a Prologue (Dawn of Life), 4 Acts (Sun, Earth, Homeland, Pilgrimage) and the spectacular solo Spirit of the Peacock Epilogue.

The peacock is a Dai worship totem and a symbol of love…called the Sun Bird. Yang Liping emulates the subtleties of the bird’s movements in her dance moves in a vivid and graceful style that is mesmerizing. Spectacular performance!
