Scrolls alive!

The interpretive dance part of the programme.



So this giant scroll unravels. Then some dancers dance on it. The dancers paint a picture with their bodies, but we don't know this until the scroll rises into the air. I am totally captivated. Also - I didn't know Ron MacLean knew so much about the Tang Dynasty but he is really showing off his personal side in this commentary. OK here are the Confucian scholars! Mansbo talking about the book of analects and then says that Confucius is one of the top 10 historical celebrities EVER in the world. Wha?
