    Attendees will have the opportunity to view traditional chinese performances like the “dragon dance,” in which teams of performers maneuver long dragon costumes using poles. the dance is said to mimic the movements of the dragon, a chinese river spirit.

    also on offer are performances of bian lian or “face-changing,” a traditional chinese dance that is part of the sichuan opera. set against quick, dramatic music, performers in vibrantly colored costumes change “faces” i.e. masks in rapid succession, hidden only by small movements like the swipe of a fan, the turn of a head, or the wave of a hand.

    there will also be kung fu demonstrations, featuring practitioners of the chinese martial art. for more information and directions, visit
