Hailed as the "Peacock Princess", 54-year-old dancer Yang Liping will be staging her farewell performance around China with her latest masterpiece, dance drama The Peacock.
Born on 10th November 1958, Yang Liping is a director, choreographer and star of the performance art show called "Dynamic Yunnan", a sell-out event all over China. In 2004, "Dynamic Yunnan" won five major awards at the National Lotus Awards.
To create the exotic song and dance spectacular "Dynamic Yunnan", Yang spent years travelling to remote villages of the 26 ethnic minority tribes in Yunnan and selected over 60 peasants who had the natural gift of song and dance, from whom she built an archive re-creating this rich feast of sight and sound.
