NCPA Dance Drama Commission The Railway to Tibet

Date: June 30-July 3 - 7:30 pm

Venue: National Centre for the Performing Arts

In 2007, bulldozers, drilling rigs, cranes and other large-sized machinery and equipment march toward Guanjiao Mountain slowly from a distance on the horizon. Under tumultuous background sounds, a group of railway builders arrive at Guanjiao Mountain and break ground for the new Guanjiao Tunnel in Qinghai province. Passing by piles of rocks, the railway builders happen to meet a middle-aged Tibetan woman (Yangchen) and her younger brother (Suolang). They hold butter lamps in their hands, and scatter a handful of highland barley to piles of rocks and ground as if they hold a memorial ceremony for someone. Catching sight of railway builders, Suolang inexplicably bubbles over with enthusiasm and speaks Tibetan language beyond railway builders' understanding. He rushes to stop them from drawing close to piles of rocks. Yangchen calmly and affectionately stares at the piles of rocks scattered around her, whispering something with a sophisticate's low and deep voice. Everyone listens to her story and time seems to travel back to 30 years ago.
