ムーラン / Hua Mulan
ジュジャンドラマアンサンブル / Zhejiang Drama Ensemble
The play is based on the Yuefu poem "Mulan Ci", which tells the story of Hua Mulan's disguise as man named Hua Ping, joining the army for her father. The director adopts the method of multimedia, using the expression of the body theatre to bring a new audio-visual experience to the audience. In the play, only one step, a few costumes, and nine actors were used to express the epic feeling of battle fighting. In the play, the martial arts of traditional opera are combined with various body movements to display various characters’ identities and emotions, and progressively promote the development of the plot. The combination of Chinese and Western cultures gives Hua Mulan new meanings in the new era.
