Ji Xiang Theatre

Madame Longly of the Belgian Embassy discovered an unpublicized, colorful dance drama taking place in Beijing during this Asian Games period, and has kindly arranged for fellow BIS members to enjoy it. Several minority groups from Guizhou Province in S.W. China belong to the Nuo culture whose ancient superstitions and religious rituals are expressed in these dances, performed by candlelight and with masked dancers.
