In this Tuesday, May 9, 2017 photo, movie director Zhang Yimou, right, looks as an emcee speaks with the Chinese female folk art performers on stage during a press conference for the "2047 Apologue" in Beijing. Zhang's new, much smaller-scale endeavor aims to start a conversation about the relationship between people and technology, and where this relationship is heading. He called "2047 Apologue" a "conceptual performance, because it's not a show or a story." Instead, he has hired Chinese folk art performers and companies from Europe and the U.S. to supply technology such as drones and robotic arms for the hourlong show that is broken into several "fragments." It will be performed at the National Center for Performing Arts in Beijing from June 16-18, and then tour several Chinese cities. (AP Photo/Louise Watt)
