"I hope the grace of the body and its movements will inspire others to discover the inside beauty and take part in the future," Guo said.

 

Guo has led her dance team to perform in remote villages and welfare houses across Changsha in recent years.

The director is famous for creating the opera I Was Not When You Were Born last year. Inspired from an anonymous Tang Dynasty (618-907) poem inscribed on a porcelain jar, the opera was staged in Paris as a part of a Hunan cultural festival in France, impressing French audience and promoting Hunan culture.
