China Disabled People's Performing Art Troupe is bringing their latest production "Guardians of Dreams" to Shanghai International Dance Center this weekend.

Tai Lihua, leading dancer of the renowned performance "Thousand-hand Bodhisattva" serves as artistic director of the new work, which is directed by rising choreographer Gong Xingxing.

Presented by 16 actors with hearing and visual impairments, the performance is based on a true story of Wang Qi, a saxophonist with visual impairment.

In the story, the young Wang lost his sight suddenly, and explores his true self and value under the guidance of his saxophone dream and the company of his family and friends.
