Suzanne Dellal Centre highlights Chinese performers Print

The Suzanne Dellal Centre Tel Aviv was the venue for recent celebrations marking 25 years of diplomatic relations between the People’s Republic of China and Israel.

A packed audience of local and tourists enjoyed two spectacular performances. The events were presented jointly by the Suzanne Dellal Center, China’s Embassy and the Ministry of Culture of China. From 16 to 21 January, 20 monks from the famed Shaolin monastery in Henan Province, China, performed a show combining the art of kung fu with a spectacular and colourful display of movement.

In addition early February, modern dance troupe the Jin Xing Dance Theatre performed a show starring and directed by Jin Xing, a famous Chinese choreographer who is also an internationally renowned film actress and a beacon of freedom of speech in China. She is followed by millions of adoring fans and is known for being public about her sex change. For this reason, she has become a model of human freedom and expression in China.
