WHAT: The Old Man and the Monkeys & Other Chinese Tales by Dragon Art Studio of                                                   Portland, OR


In its first year in the USA, Dragon Art Studio was invited to perform at the Atlanta Summer Olympics. It will return to bring five traditional and not-so-traditional fables of compassion and consideration, along with the greatest ping-pong match of all time, to life through beautiful imagery and surprising effects in this production.


Stories include: "The Crane and the Tortoise," A Donkey's Best Friend," "The Dancer," "Old Man and the Monkeys" and "The Super Duper Ping Pong Match." The National Endowment for the Arts honored the show in 2004 with a National Heritage Fellowship Award (the highest honor our nation gives to folk and traditional artists); Dragon Art Studio delights the senses while giving a special insight into Chinese folklore and culture.
