Travel across China and take in the mystic beauty of Dai, Kazakh, Mongol and Tibetan dances, performed by award-winning folk dance graduates from the Minzu University of China, one of the top universities in China specialising in ethnic studies and the arts. 

 

Paired with live music played on instruments like the dombra (long-necked lute) from the Kazakhs, morin khuur (horsehead fiddle) from the Mongols and eagle-bone flute from Tibet, the dancers portray stories and beliefs such as the Tibetan beliefs towards life and death, the celebration of nature for nomadic Mongols, a Kazakh girl’s mixed emotions as a bride-to-be, and the pattra-leaf culture of the Dai, that fuses seamlessly with modern interpretations. 

 

This performance, produced by Origin Culture and Arts, features Professor Meng Xiaoyan, Dean of Minzu University of China College of Dance, who opens the programme and sheds light on the unique characteristics, histories and evolution of these ethnic dances, allowing the audience to have a deeper understanding of the essences of Chinese folk dances.
