Bamboo Bells

Sharp, bold sounds punctuate the air with each movement as new rhythms and dynamics evolve from this traditional dance style of southern China.

This mythical tale is adopted from one of China’s four celebrated epics, Journey to the West. The Monkey King encounters the Turtle Marshall and the Prawn General and demonstrates his humorous yet fierce fighting skills against them.

This rural folk dance from Hubei province is known for its distinctive ‘flicking’ of silk fans .
