Journey to the West - Guangzhao China International Acrobatic Trop

Journey to the West
is hitting Penang, Malaysia

‘Journey to the West’ is based on one of China’s literary classics, which tells the tale of monk Xuanzang who travelled to India in search of Buddhist sutras, accompanied by the irreverent and capable Monkey King known as Sun Wu Kong, and two other disciples – Pigsy and Sandy. They had to overcome various obstacles and battle numerous demons along the way before reaching their destination.

The Guangzhou Acrobatic Troupe of China brings this tale to life through an acrobatic drama which has won over 100 awards at national and international competitions. ‘Journey to the West’ was named one of China’s Best Ten Masterpieces of Performing Arts for 2007 – 2009 and bagged the 12th China Wenhua Grand Award in 2007.

The acrobatic drama ‘Journey to the West’ has enjoyed resounding success when it was performed in Wuhan, Beijing, Nanjing, Changsha, Qingdao, Fuzhou, Guangzhou, Hong Kong, Macau, Taiwan, Australia and Germany.
