Whether it is only This Green or Tang Palace Banquet, many viewers lamented similar sentiment: “The national treasure is really moving!That’s Chinese culture!”There is no lack of audience shouted: “Please Spring Festival Gala according to such program standards roll up.”The same: the arrival of the revival of traditional culture “Tang Palace Banquet” last year, “only this green” this year followed its top.Looks, seems to be a former inspiration and reference.In fact, it is a “coincidence”.The Only Green was launched three years ago.The Only Green is produced by the Palace Museum, China Oriental Performing Arts Group Co LTD and People’s Daily Online Co LTD.In 2019, China Oriental Performing Arts Group intends to create a work that showcases the charm of traditional Chinese culture.The creative team considered “Riverside Scene at Qingming Festival” and “Han Hee-jae Night Banquet,” but chose “A Thousand Miles of Rivers and Mountains.””Because the vast rivers and the rolling mountains in the painting are full of rhythm and have something in common with dance.”To write Only This Green, the directors first studied the Map of Thousands of Rivers and Mountains, and then read almost all the poems and paintings of the Song Dynasty.Chief producers Zhou Liya and Han Zhen once revealed that it took more than a year to create the drama, and five months for the production and production. The team had discussions with experts from the Palace Museum many times.Finally, after nearly a year and eight months, “The Only Green” was officially staged.The only Green has already won approval from the market before its debut on the Year of the Tiger Gala.Since its first “exhibition” at the National Center for the Performing Arts (NCPA) in August 2021, Only This Green has been performed more than 50 times in 16 cities including Shanghai, Suzhou, Guangzhou and Shenzhen, gaining popularity and reputation.On the xiaohongshu social networking platform of Meng Qingyang, the actor of “Green”, many fans left messages asking when there will be a performance of “Only This Green” in their city.What’s more, from the premiere to the tour, the creative team has been collecting audience feedback to revise and adjust the dance.”There is no final version of ‘Only This One Is Green,’ only the best version,” Zhou said.From original ideas, to elaborate early creation, and then to the continuous adjustment after the performance, “Only This Green” finally ushered in the Spring Festival Gala.The famous painting “A Panorama of Rivers and Mountains” unfolds in a different way on the stage, which also makes modern audiences feel the peak experience of Traditional Chinese aesthetics.Some viewers commented: “After watching the program, old tears flowed freely. The traditional culture was the most touching thing in the heart.The vigorous and heavy guqin and the firm and soft dance make the picture of a Thousand Miles of Rivers and Mountains most incisively and vividly, as if back to more than 900 years ago, I saw the 18-year-old Wang Ximeng working hard to create.”Back to The Banquet at tang Palace.On the way to the banquet of the tang Terra-cotta girls, in the lively and witty play of the girls, such cultural relics and national treasures as fu Hao Owl statue, Lotus crane square pot and Jia Hu bone flute appeared interlacing on the stage.Tang Palace Banquet also incorporates elements of a Thousand Miles of Rivers and Mountains.From Night Banquet in Tang Palace to Only This Green, modern art teams have sought inspiration from ancient national treasures and formed scale effect, which also shows the arrival of a traditional culture Renaissance era.Cultural confidence: The revival of seeking roots and innovation for the new century, through the dancing “Terracotta Warriors of tang Dynasty” and “Green”, also lit the audience’s inner cultural confidence in traditional Chinese culture again and again.”With what cultural confidence?Based on the best of traditional culture.”Audience Tang Nan after watching “only this green”, so evaluation, “this is the quality of Chinese culture, the nation is the world.Meng Qingyang, the leading actor of “Only This Green”, explained his “green” part.”A pure freehand role, like the ‘A Thousand Miles of Rivers and Mountains’ a green color of the spirit, the interpretation of the need to open the imagination.This dance is no longer a woman’s soft beauty, more to see a majestic thing, representing the precipitation of traditional Chinese culture, a kind of atmosphere, but also represents our cultural confidence.”It has become common sense to bring to life the relics in museums, the heritage displayed on vast land, the words written in ancient books.Since the birth of creativity, the Banquet in Tang Palace and Only This Green are all beneficial attempts to promote the creative transformation and innovative development of excellent traditional Chinese culture.The success of “Tang Palace Banquet” and “Only this Green” is also the interpretation model of cultural relics “come alive” and “move up”.Cultural relics carry splendid civilizations, carry forward history and culture, and maintain the national spirit. They are important resources for enhancing cultural confidence.In 2021, Chinese archaeology will mark its 100th anniversary.In 2022, standing on the occasion of the new 100 years, the culture and museology craze is constantly “breaking the wall” in various ways.Whether it is the Night Banquet in Tang Palace or only This Green, what goes out with fire is not only the excavation of national treasure, national style and national trend, but also a journey of seeking roots and innovation from the homeland facing the new century.
