Silk Road

China’s greatest dance drama comes to London for the first time

Taking inspiration from the Dunhuang murals and the history of the Silk Road, the performance from the China Gansu Dance Troupe tells a touching story of friendship and peace between Chinese people and foreign merchants during the Tang Dynasty (618-907).

Silk Road has earned the reputation of being China’s premier dance drama. Fusing modern artistic techniques with traditional Chines dance, the show portrays the magnificent cultural splendours of the Tang Dynasty, a golden period of Chinese dance which produced iconic works including the Jiyue dance.

Silk Road made its debut in 1979 and was adapted for film in 1982. In the same year, the China Gansu Dance Troupe performed the work at Milan’s La Scala Theatre and Paris’ Palais de Congres, and is the first Asian performing arts organisation to appear at the two prestigious venues. Silk Road has been performed in more than 30 countries and was featured during the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games.
