Fortunately, it wasn’t that complicated at that time, so I really got on the dance ship. Basic training and rehearsal every day. Two performance seasons a year. Performed in Shanghai in autumn (around National Day). The spring represents Shanghai to major cities. Most of them still carry on the revolutionary tradition, go to the mountains and the countryside, and shuttle between cities and towns, which usually takes two to three months. At the beginning, the program was inherited from Yan’an, which was still between the folk field self-entertainment form and the stage form. In addition to the Yangko waist drum, this “Dalianxiang” was also very popular at that time.
Looking at this photo from 65 years ago, I was really full of emotions. Many interesting scenes, like movie shots, came in front of my eyes. At that time, there were no theaters in the vast rural areas of China. The stages were built with door panels that were temporarily unloaded from the homes of ordinary people (that was the largest plank plane that could be obtained at that time). Once in “Playing Lianxiang”, after a big stage (ie the opening group dance), it was Shu Qiao’s turn to lead the dance. Why did she only listen to her Lianxiang sound but no one, and then look closely at it, the original stage built with door panels is natural There is no seal and flatness. She stepped on her feet and fell into a big gap, stuck in her thigh, but the music did not stop, so she was still dancing with Lianxiang happily, leading everyone to continue dancing, just like that. To finish the show. At that time, we were both less than 20, so passionate and simple, I don’t know if Qiaozi, who is now in her 90s, remembers this interesting story.
