The peace and quiet of a traditional Chinese courtyard in Beijing is suddenly broken with the arrival of a group of people from Taiwan in 1937. Soon after, a smokeless and bloodless war breaks out in the courtyard as a more conventional war against Japanese aggression spreads across the nation.

That's the story of the new drama from the Beijing People's Art Theatre (BPAT). Titled Homeland (Gu Yuan), the play handles the cultural clashes that took place between ordinary people from the Chinese mainland and Taiwan and their united strength in fighting against Japanese aggression, demonstrating a little-known chapter of war history.

"The play portrays the patriotic feelings of individuals and draws attention to a group of people that were rarely noticed," said director Tang Ye.

Caught in-between

Set in the Taiwan Association in Beijing, a site with a more than 100 years of history Terrell Suggs Womens Jersey , Homeland's story covers Japan's invasion of China throughout the war until 1945.

Lin Wenxuan, a teacher from Taiwan, comes to Beijing, known as Beiping at the time, to purchase the traditional courtyard where his father built the Taiwan Association many years ago. The courtyard is also the home of He Changgui, a stonecutter and Beiping native. Sharing the same roots but from different backgrounds Marshal Yanda Womens Jersey , Lin and He don't get along at first, but the differences between them diminishes over time and the two eventually become brothers that work together to fight against a common enemy.

Since Taiwan was a colony of Japan at the time, Lin and other people from the island (who had Japanese nationality) were regarded as traitors to China and were treated apprehensively by the locals. Meanwhile, the Japanese that have invaded China see them as Japanese citizens and try to rope them into the war effort. Pressured and torn by both sides, these Taiwanese are constantly struggling between two opposing sides everyday.

Scenes from a media preview event held on Monday demonstrated this conflict. In the scene, He rescues an 8th Route Army soldier C.J. Mosley Womens Jersey , a fact he keeps from Lin. Becoming disillusioned with Japan's colonization of Taiwan, Lin runs into his Japanese teacher, Noda, who was looking for Lin to help revise Chinese textbooks as part of Japan's indoctrination efforts. A cornered Lin ends up pretending to be sick in order to avoid the disgraceful job.

Besides Lin, there are also musicians, writers and dentists from Taiwan Joe Flacco Womens Jersey , who also face their own personal dilemmas and are tortured with thoughts of being used by Japanese soldiers or being killed as traitors. Through the depiction of these various characters, the play presents the indomitable spirit of these people in fighting against Japan's cultural aggression. As one character says in the play: "We may not be heroes, but we are not slaves either."

Wang Jian, the play's screenwriter, told the Global Times that he heard many stories about how Taiwanese fought against Japanese colonization from the descendents of those who fought.

"We know far too little about the people of Taiwan at that time. By preparing for the play and conducting research we had the chance learn about the contributions Taiwanese had made during the war," Tang explained.

"We came to realize that in addition to the bloody battlefields on the front lines Lamar Jackson Womens Jersey , many people were struggling to maintain our culture."

Cutting things off at the root

In one scene, several people from Taiwan sing a song "Yu Ye Hua" (Rainy Night Flower) in the Taiwanese Hokkien dialect to show how they miss their home. Meanwhile, traditional Taiwanese opera also appears in the play as the characters show their persistence in maintaining their traditional culture.

Cut off from the Chinese mainland in 1895, Taiwan experienced destructive cultural aggression during its 50 years as a Japanese colony. As one Taiwanese musician complains during the play, "The dance music I wrote has won international prizes, but was banned in Taiwan. There are Japanese songs everywhere in Taiwan now and the first thing students do when they arrive at school is to sing the Japanese national anthem."

In Beiping Jaleel Scott Womens Jersey , Noda is trying to do the same thing to the city that was done in Taiwan. Under Japanese rule all the schools in Beiping are forced to replace any patriotic content with propaganda promoting the greatness of Japan and the bravery of the Japanese army.

According to Wang, these actions can all be found in historical records from the time period. During his time researching in Taiwan, he discovered that the Japanese government forbid any patriotic content, to the point that famous historical figures from more than 800 years ago couldn't be ta.
