China 1901 - 1904

Postby GrahamB on Thu Feb 11, 2021 2:06 am

This is a fascinating window into a world that has long gone. China from 1901-1904 - about 30 years after YangLuchan has died and 20 years after Dongheichuan has died.

There are some Dragon dancers at 36 minutes but I'm most intreguied by the bit at the end - street theatre performers who are whirling and circling in a manner that doesn't look a million miles away from Baguazhang ;)

Also they do this move that is the spitting image of Needle at Sea Bottom. :D

Thanks to Jarek for finding this.

I liked the "jeu avec lances et sabres." :)
