Adapted from historical sto­ries about the Chu-Han con­tention, artist Yang Lip­ing's dance drama retells this dread­ful historical pe­riod from the perspective of Xiao He, a states­man serv­ing un­der the emerg­ing Han.Xiao acts both as a par­tic­i­pant and a by­stander as historical events first por­trayed in "Am­bush from Ten Sides" and "Farewell My Con­cu­bine" un­fold.

The drama in­cor­po­rates ele­ments of Bei­jing Opera, Chi­nese mar­tial arts, Chi­nese clas­si­cal mu­sic, pa­per cut­ting, and shadow pup­petry.
