The extraordinary China Disabled People’s Performing Art Troupe is back following Canadian’s royal welcome in 2012.
The Troupe features a cast of some 52 professional artists - acrobats, musicians, singers and dancers. They are in their 20’s and are all handicapped. Some cannot hear, some cannot see, some have mobility issues. At each performance, the public gives the artists a standing ovation moved by their breathtaking performance as much as by the emotion that transcends all barriers of languages and cultures. The public also discovers new art forms such as language poems, dance by visually impaired artists and dance with sign language. Join us for an evening of beauty and hope.
Performer: China Disabled People’s Performing Art Troupe
In 1987, about 30 disabled persons who loved arts founded the China Disabled People’s Performing Art Troupe (CDPPAT). There are 110 disabled performers and 37 staff members in CDPPAT. The average age of disabled performers is 20 and that of the staff members 29. With a philosophy based on self-respect, self-confidence, self-improvement and self-reliance, as well as mutual respect, mutual care, mutual aid and mutual complementarities, they create programs, train performers, and implement publicity and marketing by themselves.
The troupe has visited over 100 countries and regions in Asia, Europe, America, Africa and Oceania, crossing the boundary of language, culture and nations, and bringing audiences the joy of art, enlightenment of heart and interaction of emotion. It held many charity activities and non-profit shows, and set up MY DREAM Fund and donated for financially supporting charity projects both at home and abroad.
CDPPAT was referred to as “Image Ambassador for 600 million people with disabilities in the world” and “Torch Bearer for SPEICAL ART” by the Disabled People’s World Assembly and was designated as “UNESCO Artist for Peace”. Now CDPPAT has become the internationally acclaimed performing art troupe, and the production My Dream, especially its outstanding program Avalokitesvara Bodhisattva, has become the world famous cultural brand.
