Hello everyone, I hope you have enjoyed the Moon Festival, and had some great time with the people you want to be with. I enjoyed it very well, it was most of the time performing on stage or training. But had some very good times and nice dinners as well.
Actually the Chinese Moon Festival or Zhongqiu Festival is a very very nice day. Bright moon in the heavens, surrounded by blinking stars. It is one of the most important celebrations in the Chinese tradition more than 3000 years old. Now it is a public holiday in China and Taiwan, even in Vietnam they celebrate this wonderful festival and of course the Chinatowns worldwide. Families are gathering and having dinner together. Eating Mooncake, matchmaking, carrying sky lanterns, burning incense to Chang’e and the Dragon dances and Moon rabbit are all traditions of this Moon Festival.
You know, it can be good if you are very busy or really into something and need a brake. Then you should take the time to refill yourself and enjoy from nature things, like a walk in the nature, mountains and waters or the sky and heaven. Collect the chi and you will feel more energized after. People now are so attached to technology, electronic devices. Working behind the computer at day and watching e-mail with your laptop at home and communicating with Facebook while traveling. It is a pity if you missed the beautiful moon, how long did you look up to the sky and enjoyed the beautiful moon with your eyes?
I have written a comedy Moon ACT for our Wudao Dragons performance show to celebrate Chinese Moon Festival. It is a story about 3 Martial Artists, named the ‘Wudao Dragons’ gathering at the mountains to enjoy the beautiful view of the city and the Moon. Then suddenly when they are dancing the Moondance, they were attacked by a bunch of villains and stolen their precious Wudao Martial Arts Manual. This is the beginning of this adventure.. I’ve added the Wudao Elements to this story to create characters and interaction. You could have a glimpse of it watching the video on the www.facebook.com/wudao.nl and will be posting some footage of our rehearsal. It would be great if we can perform this again but in theater in the near future, because with the sound and lights on stage it will even make it better. I have also invited Kung Fu Panda from ancient China to join our Wudao Dragons show in The Hague capital city of Holland, and unfortunately he didn’t catch up the flight and had some checks at the customs. But still made it to the other events. You can now book Kung Fu Panda at www.wudao.nl
