Chinese Spring Fest this Saturday
8 February 2018
THE much-awaited Chinese Spring Festival Show (Chinese New Year Show) will roar to life this coming Saturday at The 7 Arts Theatre in Avondale.
Running under the theme ‘The Dream’, the show is hosted by China Africa Exchange and Research Centre (CAERC) in partnership with the Embassy of China to Zimbabwe and Dreamstar Zimbabwe.
In an interview with one of the organisers, who happens to be the director of Dreamstar Zimbabwe, Steve Ke Zhao said:
“The Chinese New Year is a very important time for the people of China. We come together to celebrate, laugh and enjoy each other’s company.
“It is an honour that Dreamstar Zimbabwe has been chosen to participate this year’s event and our team recently travelled to China where we performed in Nanjing, Beijing and Shanghai as special guests of the Chinese Ministry of Culture.
“We are excited to be a part of the show, and we know everyone will enjoy what we offer.”
The show will be a celebration of the most important holiday in Chinese tradition, the Chinese Lunar New Year, as families come together for joy and merriment and usher in the Year of the Dog.
This year’s edition of the Spring Festival is the only of its kind to be held in Zimbabwe with the support of the Embassy of China.
Minister of Sport, Arts and Recreation Kazembe Kazembe is expected to be the guest of honour with the Ambassador of China to Zimbabwe, Huang Ping being the host.
Meanwhile, the show will also feature a small exhibition area with companies and organisations from various fields.
