Produced by the Shanghai International Dance Center (SIDCT) and directed by Song Xinxin, the 'Vision of Yoyo' is a performance by amateur dancers from all walks of life who wish to shed light on individual physical and mental conditions. Featuring performers as young as eight years old, the Vision of Yoyo was inspired by Wu Yo, an 11-year-old boy from Wuhan who began dancing during lockdown last year. A team of 13 distinctive personalities was eventually formed to explore the interaction between body and life. Shows on April 21 and 22 start at 7.30pm, but the show on April 23 starts at 2pm.

An alternately terrifying and hilarious account of a man who takes Shakespeare too seriously, "Revel's World of Shakespeare" is named after Clive T. Revel, a professor, a tyrant and a drunkard responsible for introducing the religion, the cult even, of Shakespeare to the students at London's Chelsea School for Boys. It's performed solo, in its entirety, by writer, actor, director and co-founder of the Institute of World of Theatre and Film at Peking University, Joseph Graves, who studied under Revel when he was a young boy. The show starts at 7.30pm, and the tickets are either 220rmb or 280rmb. Different cost is because of two different seating locations. Purchase tickets on SmartTicket.
