China Changing Festival returns on Saturday 7 October 2017. Join us for a day of dance, theatre, music, talks and films, plus free and family events exploring contemporary Chinese art, culture and identity. From 12 noon to 10.30pm, public events take place continuously across Royal Festival Hall.

Immerse yourself in a poignant theatre performance drawing on the true story of the great Chinese writer Lao She. Given the title 'People’s Artist' early in his career, She was later renounced as a reactionary capitalist sympathiser during the cultural revolution, with tragic consequences.

Hear a keynote delivered by Hung Huang, a multimedia mogul included in Time magazine’s 2011 'Time 100 Candidates' poll, and further talks discussing women in modern China and the recent two-child policy, with an all-female line up of speakers.

There’s also contemporary dance presented by Chinese Arts Space and Breakin' Convention for all to enjoy, with Julia Cheng and Si Rawlinson performing styles ranging from martial arts and waacking to break.

Hear comedian Chris Chan wax on (and wax off) lyrically about Asian stereotyping in a show that’s part-culture guide, part-biography, part-parody presented by Chinese Arts Space.

Families are invited to take part in free square dancing and calligraphy workshops and can enjoy free puppetry and dance performances throughout the day.

Our three-year festival showcases contemporary China, and its creative connection with the UK, through cutting-edge art and culture. China Changing Festival incorporates works by some of the most innovative artists practising in China today, as well as leading and emerging British-based Chinese and South East Asian artists.


在今年10月7日,「南岸中心」將迎來第二屆國際藝術節的「中國 變奏」。這個為期三年的國際藝術節將通過尖端的藝術與文化,展示當代的中國及其創造性的影響力,以及她與英國的多種聯繫。

所有活動將從中午12pm到晚上10.30pm 在 Royal Festival Hall 舉行。


歡迎前來聆聽洪晃發表的主題演講。洪晃是多媒體大亨, 2011年還被選入了《時代》雜誌最具影響力的當代百大人物之一,她將聯同一個全女性陣容討論中國現代婦女,最近的兩孩政策和其他中國熱門話題。那天還可以觀看一個講述人民藝術家老舍生命末期的故事的演出。邀請一家大小前來參加免費的廣場舞蹈和書法作坊,並可欣賞有趣的「小兵 张嘎」木偶劇。
