Review of 2014 Year of the Horse Chinese Cultural Show
We produced Year of the Horse Chinese Cultural Show to celebrate 2014 Chinese New Year on 1st February at Unity Theatre, who we have been working with in the past three years to put on a Chinese New Year show.
We had a full house and the theatre was packed with people of different ages and backgrounds, which produced great festival atmosphere. The show had performances from local and regional artists featuring traditional Chinese Han Tang dance, Classical Chinese dance, Chinese folk & ethnic dance, Break dance in fusion with Chinese Kung Fu, Classical Chinese music and Chinese pop music performed on Chinese Harp (Guzheng) and Chinese flute (dizi). The show was very eclectic, authentic and innovative presenting different aspects of Chinese culture including history, literature, tradition, ethnicity, modernity and integration of Chinese culture in the British society.
We received very positive feedback from the audience and the theatre. Here are a couple of the feedback:
