Speaking about the show's recent performance, Xing, the show's director, says: "We have added more local cultural elements into the production. For example, the Xunpu women, whose costumes derived from ocean culture, are an important part of the folk costumes in southern Fujian."

The latest production also blends music from a Western symphony orchestra and folk instruments from Fujian.

Xing adds that the show is also a symbol of the East-West commercial and cultural exchanges, echoing the 21st Century Maritime Silk Road, which marks the revival of the ancient trade route under Chinese President Xi Jinping's One Belt, One Road Initiative.

The plan of turning the dance drama into a movie, with 2-D and 3-D versions, was announced in Fuzhou late last month.
