China-ASEAN Drama Week to Stage Classic Plays in Nanning

The 5th China-ASEAN Drama Week will stage 40 classic plays performed by 24 groups at Nanning from Sept 6 to 12, bringing a feast of enjoyment for people there. Vietnamese drama Lopburi, Burmese dance feast Folk Drama Dance, Philippines’ classic play Mindanao, Ode to Life and newly adapted Guangdong opera Legend of the White Snake•Love are all on the list.

The 2017 China-ASEAN Drama Week (Nanning) will be jointly held by Guangxi Provincial Department of Cultural and the Nanning Municipal government.

"Since its launch in 2003, the China-ASEAN Drama Week aims to be a multicultural art festival, which displays the charm of art, develops friendship and facilitates cultural exchange," said Fang Ning, dean of the Culture and Art Research Institute of Guangxi Zhuang autonomous region.

The festival has become an important brand of cultural exchanges in Nanning, and has gradually become an art ceremony in China and Southeast Asia. Many first-class foreign troupes from ASEAN countries, including Cambodia, Indonesia and Vietnam will cooperate with Chinese drama groups to reinterpret classic dramas.

The event will adopt the 4+1 model (performance, research, exhibition, competition plus big get-together). Various forms of drama activities will be added to the event. The newly added Summit for Heads of China-ASEAN Art Institutions and Groups and joint performances by outstanding artists of China and ASEAN countries will expand the depth and scope of our cooperation. Nanning will play a more important role as a front and hub city for opening to ASEAN countries.
