Yunnan native and internationally-renowned dancer Yang Liping (杨丽萍) is returning to the stage with the follow-up to her successful music and dance production Dynamic Yunnan (云南映象), which enjoyed a long run at the Kunming Theater and sold out theaters across China.
Yang's new production Tibetan Riddle (藏谜) looks beyond Yunnan to neighboring Tibet for its inspiration. The show features more than 80 performers and is set to debut in the central Chinese city of Wuhan on August 24.
Yang, a member of the Bai ethnicity who studied dance in southern Yunnan's Xishuangbanna region, first rose to prominence in China in 1986 after winning a national dance contest with her interpretation of the Dai peacock dance. Yang will costar with Tibetan singer Rongzhongerjia (容中尔甲) in Tibetan Riddle, in which she will perform two dance solos.
