Welcome Bejing Tourism to Dublin.
Last night we had great pleasure in attending the Magical Bejing Tour of Pandas. The event took place in the fabulous Convention Centre Dublin (theccd.ie)
The event was hosted by the Bejing Municipal Commission of Tourism Development, and Tourism Ireland and was attended by the Lord Mayor of Dublin, Andrew Montague.
It was full of amazing color and spectacular. The story follows a group of pandas on their path to excellence – learning many martial arts skills along the way.
There where dancing Pandas and martial arts demonstrations that where world class and a beauty to behold. The show for me really highlighted Chinese culture and their understanding of balance. Fighting skills where combined with the beauty of dance, fantastic sound, music and action. In the same light as Yin/Yang both balance each other the show highlighted this to perfection. The Chinese have a great understanding of colour, sound, movement and balance.
The evenings event was put together by Bejing Art-creation and Cultural development Limited. The performers includes Jet Lee’s Schoolmates and some of the production team of Bejing Olympics.
The children who attended where entertained by the amazing kung-fu pandas. They had both comical antics coming into the crowd and bouncing large red ‘”Welcome Bejing’ beach balls across the audience.
The show featured many different styles of martial arts and dance. My favorite Tai Chi was included alongside Kung Fu, Kung Fu Boxing. Monkey warriors danced and fly across the stage showing amazing acrobatic skills.
Overall a fantastic night was had by all. It was a perfect blend of culture and business combined. Did you know there are over 100,000 Chinese people living in Ireland.
The event was perfectly run to allow both cultures to blend together and show each other the best of tourism from China and Ireland.
Congratulations and Thank you to all involved.
