When famed Chinese dancer and choreographer Yang Liping does her thing, audiences don't just take note — they watch in awe. Collaborating with Oscar-winning designer Tim Yip (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon) and Chinese-American installation artist Beili Liu, she's certain to evoke that response with her latest effort: Under Siege.

In its Australian premiere run at Brisbane Festival, the production mounts the historic battle between Chu and Han armies, as well as a love story between a warlord and his mistress. If the story sound familiar, that's because it has already been seen in Farewell My Concubine. Still, with performers from Peking Opera, hip-hop, ballet, contemporary dance, and classical and folk music on the bill, this performance promises something both different and special.
