Chinese fashion designer and contemporary artist Xu Rui has presented her latest project in London. The three-act performance addresses concern about climate change.

 
Take a look.
 
Xu Rui's performance draws upon a story about seven divine beasts in an ancient and legendary realm.
 
The once-exalted and powerful creatures, created both as gods and beasts, lose their magical powers after being transported to the mundane world of modern city life.
 
The three-act performance reflects how human activity impacts the natural world.
