QILIN DANCE 麒麟舞
UPDATE (Last edited August 10th): Qilin Dance performed as planned! Great success! Will post photo/video of the event once we get it all sorted out.
The village is ready to do the Qilin dance. It's been nearly ten years since it was performed, and the teachers are getting old. Over a glass of date and crabapple liquor at He Zhongli's house, we agreed to get it going again this summer break.
Estimated show date: August 5th
First day of rhythm section practice:
He Wenfeng led a bit of purification and ceremony as we took the Qilin and related beasts from He Zhongli's house to the studio. It is a mysterious and holy thing, after all.
