In conjunction with the Shanghai American School (SAS) Centennial celebrations, the critically acclaimed Shanghai Dance Company returned to the SAS Performing Arts Center on Friday, April 20th, with Two Stage Sisters – a modern dance adaptation of the epic Chinese film Wutai Jiemei.

Based on true events, it is a story about two sisters and traveling performers who become separated by the events of the Cultural Revolution and go to extraordinary lengths to survive and reunite. It is a story of love and betrayal set against the colorful backdrop of traditional Chinese theater, Japanese occupation, Communist vs. Kuomintang rule of the country, and the Cultural Revolution. For today’s audience, however, the story will also reflect the birth of a modern Shanghai and the impact of western influence on the city and country.

This particular stage production was an elegant blend of contemporary dance and traditional Chinese theater, a perfect combination to symbolize where modern China has come from and where it is heading.
