In her work choreographer Siri Dybwik has found inspiration in different women and their stories. Through conversations and literature, and in particular the book The Good Women of China by Xinran, she has examined her idea.

The Good Women of China tells about the lives and fates of Chinese women. The stories are marked by the history of China, but the themes are generally valid whichever sky one is living underneath. With these women’s stories as a background, along with several interviews and the personal understandings the dancers had of the themes, Tianshi most of all conveys a physical meeting, but also an experience rooming all emotions.
