 What would you do if the Sun was captured by a powerful Dragon, and hidden in a cave, deep beneath the sea? In this traditional Chinese tale of wonder and adventure, the young boy Bawshou bravely sets out to rescue the Sun from its dark prison. With the help of the magic golden Phoenix, Bawshou is able to meet the dragonís three great challenges, and heroically restores the land to prosperity for his people. In this artistically rich telling, Bells & Motley evoke a magical atmosphere through ageless symbols, costumes, dance, and performance techniques of the Orient. The action and mystique of the tale are further highlighted by live music on authentic Chinese traditional stringed, wind, & percussion instruments, including pipa, erhu, moon lute, guzhung (the ancient zither-harp), plus audience participation on gongs, temple bells, & theater drums!
