Living Cultures of China

Living Cultures of China

In celebration of the 40th Anniversary of Australia-China Diplomatic Relations, the China National Ethnic Song and Dance Ensemble performed for the first time in Australia a fascinating showcase of the living cultures of this vast land. This ensemble is the only national-level performance group representing China's diverse cultures. It has performed in over 70 countries and gives over 100 performances each year.

The China Ethnic Song and Dance Ensemble, in partnership with the Australian Multicultural Foundation, Multicultural Arts Victoria, Arts Centre Melbourne and in association with the China Ethnic Minorities Association for External Exchanges of the People’s Republic of China, presented this unique performance of traditional dance, song and music.  This ensemble showcased the rich diversity and long traditional history from the various regions and nomadic communities of China.

This exciting, colourful and unique performance was a demonstration of the cultures that make up the People’s Republic of China. This ensemble has toured extensively in Europe and America receiving great accolades and awards for their outstanding performances.

With thanks to Melbourne City Council and the Consulate General of The People’s Republic of China.
