The Five Principles of Peace is a diplomatic document written by Premier Zhou Enlai. It is designed as the basis for productive, peaceful relations among all nations.

Because the former Premier was also a student of philosophy, his political thinking was guided by universal forces present in nature.

This dance recognizes the depth of Zhou Enlai’s insight. It connects the Five Principles of Peace to the Five Elements of change and nature, according to traditional Chinese philosophy.

A live solo performance by Chung-Liang Huang uses the ancient art of conscious movement and stillness, t’ai chi, one of China’s great cultural gifts to the world. The dance shows Chung-Liang’s lifetime of high respect for Premier Zhou Enlai, and his commitment to lasting peace between the people of China and the people of the world.
