The dance drama Peacock is created and directed by Chinese famous choreographer and dancer Yang Liping. Since the debut of the drama in 2012, Peacock has been staged for hundreds of times at home and abroad. The peacock in the drama is not only a bird, but also a person and a member of sentient beings.
The Peacock is in four parts titled Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter respectively to symbolize life's journey reflecting a story about growth, human nature and love. The characters in the drama embody the different levels of human nature, brightness & awareness, love & devotion, obsession & being lost, and fear & vanity. The story is about peacock as well as human nature, and it also a parable about life.
The Peacock of Winter, to be shown at the Jincheng Art Palace, is an independent part of the drama Peacock, which conveys Yang's thinking and perception about dying, death, nirvana and rebirth.
