Tang Dynasty Tour showcases world class dance performance

Timetravelling series Tang Dynasty Tour 唐砖 is the first time I’ve seen an ancient drama directly lift an already popular dance to be performed in the show. The dance, An Outing with Beauties 丽人行, is adapted from award-winning dance drama  Du Fu, is based off a poem that uses descriptions of the nonchalance and beauty of the women picnicking in the spring to criticize the lives of the rich in the Tang dynasty.

  1. This is STUNNING. And such a great embodiment of the attention to detail that ancient China was known for. I hope the Beijing Olympics 2022 incorporate things like this into its opening ceremony.
