Tianjin launches a week of folk culture

TIANJIN began its week-long culture show at the World Expo 2010 yesterday with a display of many of its folk arts at the Baosteel Stage in Zone B of the Pudong site.

Activities included painting Yangliuqing New Year pictures and making Clay Figurine Zhang, two of the more than 100-year-old traditional folk arts of the city.

People can make their own Yangliuqing paintings and clay figurines with the help of artists, Li Peisheng, deputy secretary general of Tianjin municipal government, said.

There are also demonstrations of kite making and paper-cutting to be held on the stage three times a day until Thursday.

Pingju Opera and Jingdong Drum Song will be performed at 10:30am and 3pm at the Celebration Square and Baosteel Stage. Traditional acrobatics and martial arts will also be performed.

A street parade on the Baocheng Road will be held from 12am to 1pm every day.

Visitors will be invited to play puppets with the artists during the parade.

Other culture weeks this month include those of Hebei, Shanxi, Liaoning provinces and Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region.
