On village GaoYi’s main street (Hunan, China), a public announcement is posted to recruit actors for government cultural activities, and the villagers watch with great interest. The announcement does not disturb the rhythm of their daily life. Everything in the village goes on methodically, the butcher slaughters the meat, the captain ferries back and forth. The villagers’ life scenes are actually the most natural and real performance.
