Before Writing, I talked with Pingtan Artist Mr. LU Jiawei and asked him a question:
"Having acted varied roles, which one bears a resemblance to you?"
LU thought deeply for a long time and asked himself:
"Which character in which drama I resemble?"
It is a story talking about a storyteller: he repeats what the book says and subtly influenced
by the characters in the story. He tries to imitate the tones, behaviors and characters of the
roles and gradually considers he is the man in the story. Finally, he could not tell whether he is
in the story or living in the real world.
Creators started from hearing, around the clue of 'Imitation - Evolution', and formed a dramatic connection between the three part of the stage - Pingtan, double bass and dancers.
We are more or less living under someone else's shadows.
