China State Theatre is bringing its production of The Embroidery Girl to the Cambridge Corn Exchange next week.
It tells the legendary story about embroidery Master Xiu Niang’s life, loves and her grand accomplishment, the production of a famous Embroidery Art Bible in male-dominated Qing dynasty China.
This balletic work is a heady blend of Chinese folk, classical and contemporary dance. It has West-End production values but retains a distinctly Chinese feel.
The show is choreographed by Zhao Ming, stars Chinese dance superstar Zhang Yashu and stage art by Zhang Jiwen, a multi-award winning contemporary stage designer.
It will be performed on Tuesday March 27 at 7.30pm.
