Program Introduction
As China’s first espionage thriller dance drama, The Eternal Wave produced by Shanghai Dance Theatre Company Limited is a recognised phenomenal work in theatre after a tour of over 400 performances. The drama is based on the dual career of the revolutionary martyr Li Bai who was involved in a clandestine radio station, reproducing the tense atmosphere in Shanghai teeming with lurking spies before the liberation, as well as the sinister environment and the dedication of the clandestine revolutionary heroes fighting in the war without a weapon. In order to transcend the physical narrative boundaries of dance dramas and present the suspense and ups and downs of the spy story, the choreographer and his creative team place high demands on the dancers in characterization and emotional expression, and skilfully use the stage space and shifting focus of the audience to present a tight plot like a montage film through parallel narratives, flashbacks and crosscuts.
