THE GREATEST GOOD

20 July 2018 (Fri) & 21 July 2018 (Sat) 

8 pm | 75 minutes 

Drama Centre Theatre

Dance drama “The Greatest Good” tells a story of filial piety, an important value in traditional Chinese culture.   Zhen Zi, the reincarnation of a hermit, was a filial son to a kind old couple in the village.  He loved and took great care of his ageing parents, and even brought them to the mountains for retirement.  One day, Zhen Zi was accidentally shot by the King who was out hunting.  Filled with remorse, the King brought Zhen Zi’s body back to the couple to seek their forgiveness, and promised to fulfil their son’s duty to take care of them.  The old couple were devastated when they found out about their son’s death. Upon hearing the couple’s loud cries, the Heavens was moved, and decided to revive Zhen Zi, along with healing the father’s vision.  They were overjoyed and the King became sworn brothers with Zhen Zi, while he continued to rule the country with love and compassion.

Interweaving the magic of Chinese folktale and refreshing dance choreography, the dance drama aims to reinforce positive values in the younger generation, such as showing gratitude to and respecting our elders, and having love and compassion for the people and things around us.
