when its performanc上海品茶微信 created a sensati

The first time the POB visited Shanghai was in 2005, when its performance of Giselle created a se

nsation in the city, says Zhang Xiaoding, general manager of Shanghai Grand Theatre.上海品茶微信

“It is very difficult to have the company come to China, because the cost is really high,” Zhang says.

上海品茶微信女神会所”We decided to make the best out of the opportunity, and prepared lectures, workshops and othe

r educational programs to allow the artists to communicate with the public in Shanghai.”

Tickets to the four Swan Lake shows sold out quickly, and the theater added dozens of temporary seats for each performance.

The two gala shows are selling very well, too,” she said before the shows.上海品茶微信

“Shanghai audiences not only enjoy classical ballets such as Swan Lake but have also show

上海品茶微信女神会所n a great deal of interest in contemporary dance. That’s why we made the request for the POB to present the

gala show featuring contemporary dance in Shanghai when we first discussed its tour plans.”

The gala show consists of three choreographers’ works. Blake Works I marks the first collaboration between choreo上海品茶微信

grapher William Forsythe and English musician James Blake. In the Night by Jerome Robbins is a romantic dan

上海品茶微信女神会所ce, consisting of three elegant duets to Chopin’s nocturne pieces. And The Seasons’ Canon features group dancing by

Crystal Pite to music from Antonio Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons, rearranged by Max Richter.

The POB is widely recognized for its excellence in classical ballet, but the company上海品茶微信女神会所

is equally strong in its interpretation of contemporary-dance works, Moglia

says. Contemporary dance productions now make up half of the POB’s performance programs.

oday, the POB has 154 dancers, including 17 danseurs etoiles (上海品茶微信

star dancers), a title awarded to only the most outstanding principal dancers.

上海品茶微信女神会所While most of the POB dancers come from the Paris Opera Ballet S

chool, the institution also recruits aspiring dancers from all over the world.

“We have dancers from 14 different countries,” Moglia says.

“One of them is from China, who used to study in H

ong Kong, and after three years of training at our school, he is now a dancer with the POB.”

One of the oldest ballet companies in the world, the POB is an integrated part of the Pari

s Opera. The ballet originated from earlier dance institutions and practices of the court of Louis XIV. The P

OB represents an important branch in the evolution of ballet, which originated from t

he royal courts of the Italian Renaissance. It was in France that ballet turned into an independent theatrical form

of art. After that, the Royal Danish Ballet and the Imperial Ballet of Russia also began to flourish.

haoyang Theatre amaz上海品茶微信ith aerial acrobatics

Beijing’s Chaoyang Theatre has for decades been the capital’s go-to destination for electrifying and awe-inspir

ing Chinese acrobatics performances, entertaining audiences from all over the globe.上海品茶微信

Located in the city’s Chaoyang district, the theater, which opened in 1984, has evolved from being a venue for dance dra

上海品茶微信女神会所mas and opera to a must-visit destination awarded as a national center of culture in 2001.

After years of refinements, acrobatics was eventually designated as the theater’s perm

anent theme. Chinese acrobatics is a spectacular performance art characterized by amazing physical feat上海品茶微信

s and gravity-defying stunts, inspired by the struggle between humans and nature.

Acrobatics has a rich history in China. In ancient times, the art form was in

上海品茶微信女神会所spired by hunting and going to war. Historical documents show acrobatics first app

eared during the Spring and Autumn Period (770-476 BC). It was refined during the Western Han Dynasty (206 BC

-AD 24), when pole climbing and tightrope walking debuted on stage. The most famous performance at that time, Gua上海品茶微信

ng Chang Bai Xi, saw a rich variety of acrobatic acts performed simultaneously in a public square.

Chaoyang Theatre currently stages about 1,000 dazzling performances every year, including up to four d上海品茶微信

aily shows in its 1,300-seat performance hall during peak season from May to October.

上海品茶微信女神会所Many renowned acrobatics troupes have graced the stage at the theater, am

ong them Deyang Acrobatic Troupe from Southwest China’s Sichuan province, w

hich has performed its acrobatics show Flying in Chaoyang Theatre for almost 20 years.上海品茶微信

The show celebrates the ancient worship of the sun and birds by the people of Sichuan thousands of years ago. Its name was

inspired by the notion that one day the human mind and body would be able to fly freely.上海品茶微信女神会所

The storytelling mixes flips, falls, dance and high-wire spectacle with the latest in high-tech sound and lighting, to whisk the

audiences away to the world of Sichuan some 3,000 years ago. At the show’s climax, live peacocks and macaws fr

om Sichuan fly over the audience to land and perch on the hands of the performers on stage.

2018 was 63 percent-and domestic movies raked in 14.8 billion yuan, a fall of 17.5 percent compared to last year.

At the Shanghai festival, which runs through Monday, seven top Chinese studio chiefs gathered for the first forum there to discuss the challenges ahead.

Yu Dong, chairman and CEO of the Bona Film Group, says last year was “a severe winter” for the

industry. Nearly half of the publicly-listed film companies saw their market valuations shrink.

Following A-list actress Fan Bingbing’s tax scandal, China ordered film and TV companies and indivi

duals to fully declare their earnings and “self-examine taxpaying”. A total of 11.8 billion yuan of unpa

A growing number of people are eating alone, whether at home or in restaurants, and overturning traditional etiquette. Zhang Yangfei reports.

In China, food has always played a major role in promoting social cohesion. Communal eating is not on

ly familybased and deeply rooted in the nation’s cultural heritage, but is also regarded as an indicator of society’s health and stability.

Given that background, it is little wonder that eating alone, publicly or privately, has long been considered taboo.

However, in recent years things have started to change as a r

esult of demographic shifts and the growing influence of modern lifestyles.

According to a report released last year by the global market researcher

Kantar, 46 percent of people interviewed said they had eaten alone in the previous 24 ho

urs, a rise of 9 percent from 2017, and about 16 percent expressed a preference for eating solo.

tariffs by the US on solar imports, as well as the country’s anti

dumping and anti-subsidy measures, have largely reduced China’s export to the country.

Photovoltaic modules export to India also slumped 24.4 percent to 1.81 GW in the first quarter, as the Indian government ordere

d that all photovoltaic modules for government and central public utilities projects should be 100 percent India-made.

China’s top five photovoltaic modules exporters in value in the first quarter were Jinko Solar, J

A Solar, Trina Solar, Canadian Solar, and Longi, taking up 12.8, 8.6, 8.3, 7.4, and 6.7 percent, resp

ectively, of total export value. Export volume of the top 12 exporters took up 65 percent of total export, added the report.

The report projected that China’s photovoltaic modules capacity will furth

er expand 8.5 percent to 83 GW this year, with nearly 50 GW exported to the overseas market.

Ministry of Industry and Information Technology data show

ed China’s digital economy had reached more than 27 trillion yuan ($4 trillio

n) in 2017, a year-on-year rise of 20.3 percent, accounting for nearly 33 percent of GDP.

Lu said the growth rate of the number of people working as new media operators in 2017 was mo

re than 10 times that of 2013. The growth comes as more consumers turn from mass media to new me

dia, which provides more information, is faster, has a more diversified presentation and cheaper cost.

Algorithm engineers, in particular, grew at exponential rates. More than fi

ve times as many people worked as algorithm engineers in 2017 than 2013, he said.

“Algorithm is the foundation for artificial intelligence. AI has started to integrate with other industr

ies and already had been successfully implemented in AI plus marketing, finance and assisted medical dia

gnosis. AI engineers will have more value as AI becomes more closely tied with more businesses,” Lu said.
