Adapted from a Chinese mythology, “The Greatest Good” tells a story of a wise man who reincarnated as a filial son, Zhen Zi, to a kind old village couple. Zhen Zi took good care of his parents, especially his father who was blind. One day, the young Zhen Zi was accidentally shot by the King who was out hunting. Filled with remorse and touched by Zhen Zi’s filial love, the King brought Zhen Zi’s body back to the old couple to seek their forgiveness, and promised to fulfil their son’s duty to take care of them. The old couple were devastated upon learning about their son’s death, and their loud cries were heard by the Heaven. Deeply moved by the couple’s plight, the Heaven revived Zhen Zi and even restored his father’s sight, and the family was eventually reunited.
“The Greatest Good” has been put together by our creative team led by Artistic Director Madam Lim Moi Kim. Interweaving the magic of Chinese folktale and refreshing dance choreography to tell an inspiring story of filial piety, the dance drama aims to reinforce in the younger generation positive character traits such as showing gratitude and respect to our elders, and having love and compassion for the people and things around us.
