"The Big Hakka Round House", a performance featuring Hakka culture and history, will be staged next week at the Shenzhen Grand Theater.

Written by playwright An Rongqing, composed by Zhang Dalong and choreographed by Zhang Jiwen, "The Big Hakka Round House" features leading young dancers from around the nation, including Yin Shuo, Zeng Ming and Liu Shu.

Yin, the solo dancer in "Silk Road" which was performed at the opening ceremony of the 2008 Olympic Games, plays the leading role of Xueniang in the first Shenzhen-produced folk dance play.

It tells the story of a family of migrating Hakkas. Xueniang is an orphan adopted by the Lin family. Madam Lin raises the girl as her own, and the child is engaged to her own son Tianshu. When the family migrates to Guangdong to settle down, however, Tianshu meets a local ethnic minority girl, Meizi, and falls in love with her. Bowing to his mother's wishes, Tianshu marries Xueniang but leaves to fight the Japanese invaders soon after the wedding. Meizi dies giving birth to their illegitimate son and the boy is entrusted to Xueniang.

Tianshu gives his life for his country and, many years later, his son leaves his hometown to explore Southeast Asia.
