《幻茶谜经》的创意源自法门寺出土文物——唐朝皇帝的一套皇室茶具，以“茶”为线索，抽象了时间和空间，还原了人性本质。讲述了一位亦真亦幻的女子与剧中三位不同隐喻的男性：樵夫，高士，僧人的偶遇触发，在情绪的发展中不断的变换轮回升华，恍若幻梦一场。在极简淡雅的视觉中呈现出人本身所具有的无量精神空间。 The work is inspired by the exquisite tea set relic, which was unearthed from Famen Temple and used for the emperor in Tang Dynasty. It follows the clue of “Tea” , blurs the boundary of time and space and returns human nature. In the play, the three characters of a woodman, hermit and monk represent different types of people. They encounter a fair lady, constantly change and get lost in endless loop, presenting a spiritual vastness of human beings through a fresh and elegant visual tableau. The Tea Spell is created by an international creative team with world-class dance, plot, music and lighting. It integrates bold and exquisite artistic elements, rarely seen in China.

Sitting in the corner of the theatre, the audience feel like returning back to a mysterious dreamland and appreciate the oriental aesthetics.

线索源于法门寺出土的文物——唐朝皇帝僖宗李儇的一套精美茶具，以“茶”为因，由男性舞者反串绝色女子茶幻并与剧中的樵夫、高士、僧人分别相遇。 Plot of The Tea Spell originates from a group of antiques unearthed at FamenTemple:exquisite tea sets used by Emperor Xizong of Tang Dynasty.The show uses tea as a vehicle and illustrates the encounters of a stunningly beautiful woman (played by male dancer) with a farmer, an officer and a monk respectively.
这三个人物分别隐喻三种不同精神指向的个体，在与美若天人的女子茶幻偶遇后或心动或伪装或煎熬或恍然的心路历程，步步皆戏，章章见心，引领观众在高古深致的感通体验中悦纳“素处以默、妙机其微”的神韵。这部作品在视觉艺术上，无论服装，道具，舞美，妆容等无不展示出赵梁ART的国际化审美，深厚文化底蕴和艺术创作追求。 The three male characters imply people with three different kinds of psychological orientations.After meeting with the stunning beauty,they are either being allured, or pretending nothing has happened, or struggling, or getting carried away.The storyline is vivid and manifests profound human nature.Through multi-sensory experience, the audiences glimpse into the subtle wisdom of the universe in a detached way.In terms of visual effect, the performance presents its cutting-edge aesthetics in terms of costumes, props, choreography and artistic makeup.
