Experience breath-taking Chinese dance from one of the country’s top choreographers. The Embroidery Girl brings its European tour to Swansea Grand Theatre on Fri 30 Mar at 7.30pm for one night only.

The Embroidery Girl is a sublimely beautiful dance drama, set during the transition period from the Qing Dynasty (the last imperial dynasty) to the Republic of China, a moment of great historical significance.

Through a combination of innovative choreography from top Chinese director Zhao Ming, striking stage presentation from multi award-winning contemporary stage designer Zhang Jiwen and beautiful storytelling, it tells weaves the tale of Master Xiu Nang’s life, loves and grand accomplishments, from her beginnings as a poor girl fighting for the liberty to live and love freely. At the centre of the tale is her embroidery, work which became renowned as the famous Embroidery Art Bible in male dominated Qing Dynasty China.

Starring Chinese dance superstar Zhang Yashu, this large-scale, international production debuted in China, later touring to the USA and Canada, where it received rave reviews. Filled with spectacular contemporary and classical dance, music, tragedy and lots of humour The Embroidery Girl brings old and new together in a unique and powerful artistic expression of movement and storytelling.
