Shangtang River is the oldest canal riverway and the first artificial river in Hangzhou. Gongshu District has built Shangtang Ancient Scenic Area under the standard of “one street, one corridor, and one show”.
A grand opening ceremony of the show, named “Dreamlike Shangtang”, was held yesterday. To be formally open to the public around the National Day, this 50-minute night tour show is China’s first live-action performance introducing the ancient canal culture of Jiangnan. Multiple cutting-edge technologies are applied to bring back historical events and introduce “seven canals and thirteen views” in the novel form of “progressive performance and immersive viewing”.
