Produced by the Northeast Normal University original dance drama 'A Floating Life' comes to Beijing. But don't let the title fool you, there is nothing light about this piece as it retraces the hardships that Northeast China endured a century ago.
The story centers around three children's lives after their mother was killed during the Japanese invasion. The drama is meant to invite audiences to re-examine human nature and the nature of war. The bulk of the drama consists of a group dance number, which is rarely seen in dance dramas today.
