A choreography based on the ancient Guqin score “ShanJuYin” from Song Dynasty; a chant, a song, a poem that expresses the abstract soundscape and landscape of ancient mountain living through various layers of movement, sound, music and visuals, and digs into the deepest reflection of human life and makes you re-think of the modern living style. Guqin is the oldest string instrument in China. According to tradition, Guqin originally had five strings, representing the five elements of metal, wood, water, fire and earth. The surface board is round to represent heaven and the bottom board flat to represent earth. The length of Guqin is 3chi 6cun 5fen, representing the 365 days of the year.
