Dunhuang arts conclude university cultural festival
Students at Fudan University indulged in dances and lectures about gorgeous Dunhuang culture on Wednesday evening to conclude the monthlong collegiate culture festival.
Among the performances was a dance featuring pipa, a Chinese stringed instrument, performed by Yin Shuo, a leading dancer at China Oriental Performing Arts Group.
The dance was also performed during the Belt and Road Forum for International Cooperation last year.
She also delivered a speech to share her experiences performing at the opening ceremony of the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing and on a famous Chinese TV program called “Nation’s Greatest Treasures."
Zhao Shengliang, vice president of the Dunhuang Academy, also talked about the cultural connotations and artistic value of Dunhuang frescoes.
It was the second year the university has organized the collegiate cultural festival to promote traditional Chinese culture among students.
In the past month the university held about 30 activities during the collegiate cultural festival, including lectures and appreciation activities involving Chinese folk music, calligraphy, shadowboxing and other traditional Chinese culture.
