SEEKING IMMEDIATE COSTUME DESIGNER & SCENIC DESIGN FOR FISH XIXI LEGEND, A SITE-SPECIFIC WORK OF THEATRE AT ZUNYI THEME PARK IN CHINA
Background Story of Fish Xixi Legend
In ancient China, species on the earth appeared in an explosive speed. All kinds of rare creatures and animals appeared at the same time. It was the tipping point of the Yin and Yang balance on the earth. The leader of the yang force was called Yuan Ming Emperor, and was the embodiment of compassion and light. The leader of the Ying force was called Kong Ming Emperor, and was the embodiment of evil and darkness. In this great battle, Yuan Ming Emperor defeated the Kong Ming Emperor by using the power of wind and water, against the enemy’s power of earth and fire. Yuan Ming Emperor sealed the remnants of the evil force in Kong Ming, a place unreachable by human beings.
In the process of material exchange and exploitation, people grew more and more selfish and greedy. As people lost faith in spirituality and divinity, war and plague became more frequent. People’s sufferings accumulated and grew into a strong collective resentment, which caused resonance with the Kong Ming up in the air. Using this resentment, the Kong Ming Emperor broke through the seal during an eclipse and attempted to take over the world. Having lost people’s faith and worship, Yuan Ming Emperor’s power gradually weakened. He foresaw that the seal would be broken by the evil force. In case of emergency, Yuan Ming Emperor decided to reincarnate as a mortal in order to grow in a different way and to eventually protect his people.
