Are we walking into a painting or are they walking out of a painting? In the background of this performance is one of the most famous paper ink paintings in Chinese history called "Dwelling in the Fuchun Mountains", created in the Yuan Dynasty in 1350. These legendary poets reciting and singing their poems in nature embodies the dream life of ancient Chinese literati, to melt into nature and sing its glory.

Traditional Chinese literati consider calligraphy and painting as one art. Poems are often written on the side or top of paintings. This performance of reciting ancient poetry brings the landscape and characters from the paintings alive.
