In ancient China, people were living in an affluence, carefree life. One day, when everyone were working in the fields, children were playing and each household were busy preparing the day, suddenly a ferocious monster appeared and attacked the villagers. Then, the villagers worked together to get rid of the monster. Everyone were happy cheering that it was the start of a new year, thus, they named the moster "Nian (which means "Year" in Chinese)" and the new year is "New Year". Since then, Chinese people celebrate the arrival of the new year as a traditional practice.
This time, the famous legendary story of "Nian" becomes the creative theme of our famous choreographer, Anthony Meh for our Chinese New Year production.
Dua Space brings you the new year production - "The Story of Nian", utilizing creative style of dance and body movements to present the story and to celebrate this festive season with everyone!
