Deep in Memory, the latest dance drama production by director and choreographer Tong Ruirui, will be staged at the National Center for the Performing Arts in Beijing on Saturday and Sunday.

The dance drama, which premiered on Sept 18 in Nanjing, was also staged during the Shanghai International Arts Festival over Nov 9-10.

The show, performed by the Jiangsu Performing Arts Group, follows the survivors and witnesses of the Nanjing Massacre that took place when invading Japanese troops captured Nanjing, after which more than 300,000 Chinese were killed in a six-week rampage from Dec 13, 1937.
