The mountains and the rivers are full of blood, hundred thousand youths hundred thousand soldiers. In this non-existing The Thirteenth Month, people are alive and carrying forward but with much agony and shouts. Inscribing and imagining of those unbearable history, not forgetting, not being apathetic, but remembering deep in the heart. Nanjing 1937!

The company regularly conducts dance salons, masterclasses, workshops, experimental productions exchange performances, and dance education programs. It has formed a long-term strategic consensus to work together to drive forward the development of modern dance in the Jiangsu area.
