Design Statement

The work is based on the Farmer and the Snake, and it develops into the legend of reincarnation between an Old Man and General Pythonland. The work tries to show evilness in forms of extreme beauty. Colorful flowers and clouds are the core images in this fictional world. The main elements of costumes are curves with flower and python style which is in tune with the main props. Through the strong contrast of color, style and material, The General’s costumes are presented with colorful, splendid, and conspicuous work which is embroidered with multi-layered peony flowers, using brocade and lace fabric. The movements developed as an extension of the fabric itself, and were directly shaped on the actors’ bodies. The Old Man's clothing is mild in color and is applied with traditional Chinese moire and cloud patterns. Aesthetic direction of the whole drama presents glamourous dramatic image and fantastic visual effect, which happens to be in line with the environment of Zhengyici theatre.
