The work integrates the basic rhythmic movements of Chinese classical dance and folk dance and the concepts and designs of contemporary dance. Dance movements of the various parts of the body appear on the stage as individual themes and in various combinations and dimensions. With the adoption of modern music, the dance may be regarded as a multi-media performance.
The entire work is divided into four parts, each focuses on the movements of one particular part of the body and the respective rhythmic characteristics. In the end, movements of the various parts come together and display its dynamic nature.
