In Feng Xiaogang’s The Banquet, Qing Nü traded life and love for desire and revenge, while in Zhang Yimou’s Hero, the character Snow sacrificed herself for her beloved country. Originally presented at Huayi – Chinese Festival of Arts 华艺节 2012. Premieres on 16 Jul, Thu, 7:30pm. Available on Esplanade Offstage until 31 Jul 2020.
