Terracotta Warriors (review)

Terracotta Warriors (review) TERRACOTTA WARRIORS. Written, produced, and directed by Dennis K. Law, MD. Cerritos Center for the Performing Arts, Los Angeles, California. 23 September 2006. Terracotta Warriors, which tells the story of emperor Qin Shi Huang (259­210 bce), who united China and was buried with seven thousand terracotta warriors, is a "World Premiere Action Musical" (information and descriptive quotations are all taken from the Terracotta Warriors program). The production first premiered 29 May 2002 at the Centre in Vancouver for Performing Arts in Canada, and has been touring ever since. Its creator, Dennis K. Law, MD, claims that it is fusion Chinese theatre, but the reality is more complex. The production features both original Western and Chinese music, composed by Hao Wei Ya, combining recorded music with live singing and percussion, Western and Chinese dance (for example, in one scene, a ballet is performed side-by-side with a traditional water sleeve dance), and Western and Chinese theatre techniques. The original project was a Chinese-Canadian production, conceived, written, and directed by Law, who oversaw every single aspect of production. Law was a surgeon in Denver, Colorado, who retired, bought the Centre in Vancouver for the Performing Arts, and developed three action musicals: http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Asian Theatre Journal University of Hawai'I Press
