Manchester Confucius Institute is very delighted to bring an award winning show from Karin Schäfer of Figuren Theatre to Manchester that blends puppetry, video and animation.
Zheng He -When the Dragon Ships Came relates the tale of the fantastic journeys of this famous Chinese explorer who with his fleet of more than 300 enormous ‘dragon ships’ sailed via Indonesia, India, and the Arabian Coast to Africa – almost 100 years before Columbus set sail for America. While every child in China knows the story of Zheng He’s travels, here, his adventures remain largely unknown.
Enjoyed by children and adults alike.
