Wang says many of her dance works are inspired by literature works, such as Wild Grass, based on Chinese writer Lu Xun's 1927 prose poem collection, and The Banquet, based on Hamlet.

Last year, Wang co-founded a theater company, the Beijing Repertory Theater, and made her directorial debut with a play titled The Lady from the Sea.

The play, based on a work by Norwegian playwright Henrik Ibsen in 1888, is about a lighthouse-keeper's daughter named Ellida, who has to decide whether to stay on land with her husband, a successful doctor, or leave her stable life for a sailor she loves.

Wang and Meng also gave talks at the event on March 17 about their lives and theater.

Meng is regarded as one of the country's pioneering contemporary directors, and one of his most successful plays, Rhinoceros in Love, is a big hit with young audiences across China.
