Today we welcomed the delegation of the Jiangsu Intangible Heritage Troupe, who have come all the way from China to celebrate the Lunar New Year with us. As a prelude to Saturday’s Lunar New Year Festival, the artists and performers gave our visitors a sneak peek of their talents.
Xiao Hong Hua (“Little Red Flower”) Arts Troupe is a group of children who study at one of China’s first performing arts schools. They attend regular classes in the morning and attend performance classes in the afternoon. In addition, six renowned artists from Jiangsu are experts in their crafts, which range from sugar art to papercutting to Chinese knotting. Check out the slideshow below for a sampling of their work!
The Jiangsu Intangible Heritage Troupe will be at Pacific Asia Museum tomorrow, Friday February 1 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. The Little Red Flower troupe will perform in the auditorium at 11 a.m. And if you miss them tomorrow, make sure you come to our Lunar New Year Festival on Saturday, February 2! ~CM
