"Ermaji" is made up of three acts: Paying tribute to the God of Mountain, Playing in the Mountain and Walking in the Mountain. It stages the traditional and unique Qiang culture, and the audience could feel the Qiang culture and life philosophy -- How to get through the disaster and still living in the canyon in a vibrant and vigorous manner.
