The 100-minute performance was punctuated by warm applause. One viewer said, "The performance is mind-blowing. It is a perfect mixture of acrobatics, storytelling, color, music, dance and poems."

According to the chief director He Xiaobin, the purpose of the project was to break people's stereotypes of traditional acrobatics. Xue Shengtang, Jianhu's county magistrate, acclaimed the show for the good values it advocates, such as patriotism, integrity and kindness. It also reflected cultural exchange and the Belt and Road Initiative.
