I’m going to see a preformance by the Shaolin Kung Fu Group next week in Lucent Danstheater (Den Haag). They’re performing ‘The Seasons and the King’. Though not really sure what to expect, I am quite looking forward to it.
The topic, the concept and the exercises: everything originates directly from the famous Shaolin temple in China. The Kung Fu monks know this Temple and the famous exercises like no one else. This production gives a picture of the daily practices during the four seasons. Beside the spectacular exercises we see components, which have not yet been shown not yet earlier in the west.
