Dance performance The Tea Spell originates from a group of antiques unearthed at Famen Temple located in Famen Town of Shaanxi Province, including exquisite tea sets used by Emperor Xizong of Tang Dynasty (618-907). The new dance uses tea as a vehicle to illustrates encounters between a stunningly beautiful woman (played by male dancer) with a farmer, an officer and a monk respectively. The three male characters represent people with three different kinds of psychological orientations. The story line is vivid and manifests profound illustration of human nature. With the multi-sensory experience, the audience are able to look into the subtle wisdom of the universe in a detached way.
