Director of opening and closing ceremonies for Asian Games and Asian Para Games is a true professional with a command of detail, Li Yingxue reports.

From the digital torchbearer and the drifting osmanthus fragrance in the stadium, to the garden made with 40,000 lights on the lawn, the opening and closing ceremonies of the Hangzhou Asian Games and Asian Para Games showed a unique side of Hangzhou, Zhejiang province, through the fusion of technology and art.

Behind these distinctive performances was three years of continuous effort by the same backstage production team. The most dedicated manager in this team was its chief producer Wu Yan.

From planning the performance to forming the teams, from controlling budget expenditure to the implementation of the plans, every step and every detail involved the participation of 52-year-old Wu.

With more than 20 years of experience in the sector, Wu has continuously honed herself on one project after another, tirelessly refining her control over every detail. She incorporated a feminine perspective and consistently sought ways to better showcase Chinese culture in these shows.
