After a sold-out show for the Year of Dragon at Unity Theatre, we are honoured to work with Unity again to present a Chinese arts festival to celebrate the year of the snake on Friday 1st March and Saturday 2nd March 2013.

This year it will be more enticing and exciting with both traditional and contemporary beautiful Chinese dance and music performances as well as a dance theatre about the beautiful Chinese folktale ‘Lady White Snake’.
