Pearl the Show: directed and choreographed by Daniel Ezralow
PEARL is a theatrical show, based on the life of Pulitzer Prize-winning author Pearl S. Buck, produced by Zhenjiang Media and Culture Industrial Group and Legend River Entertainment. This show is also being co-produced by Studiomusica USA. The story, which is familiar to both the Chinese and Western audiences, will be brought to life through the art of dance, highlighting the blending of two cultures and “East meets West” in abstract form. The show will run from August 27-30, 2015 at Lincoln Center in New York City.
The show will be told in five symbolic stages – Spring, River, Flower, Moon, and Night – based on a famous poem written by Zhang Ruoxu about the passing human existence. Daniel Ezralow (Choreographer: Sochi Olympics Opening Ceremony, Across the Universe) will choreograph and direct. The show will be produced by Angela Xiaolei Tang, CEO of Legend River Entertainment with set and costume design by Michael Cotten (Michael Jackson’s “This Is It”, Tours for Carrie Underwood, Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus), lighting design by Howell Binkley (Jersey Boys, Tony Award), and music composed by Jun Miyake (“Pina”). Mirada (“Dark Horse” music video for Katy Perry, IBM Think Exhibit, promo video for Disney’s New Fantasyland) will contribute the video design.
