More than 10 shows were staged by an art troupe from Guizhou Song and Dance Theater in five British cities – London, Belfast, Edinburgh, Manchester, and Preston — from Jan 16 to 29, adding local color to the 2020 Chinese New Year celebrations in the UK.
The rich, iridescent cultural fabric woven by the 49 ethnic groups inhabiting Southwest China's Guizhou province was showcased through folk songs and dance, entertaining tens of thousands of local audience members, visitors from around the world, as well as local Chinese communities.
