Running the Silk Road
In the year of the Beijing Olympics, a group of friends from London set themselves an epic challenge - to run the ancient Silk Road trading route to China, carrying an 'alternative' Olympic flame. Once on the road, complications and conflict test friendships and soon threaten their chances of success.
Weaving in and out of the contemporary story are the magical and timeless myths, performed using the spectacularly acrobatic, whirling excitement that is the Beijing Opera Theatre.
