Synopsis

As a folk art peculiar to Zhongshan, Drunken Dragon dance has been over 700 years and, in June 2008, it was listed in the national intangible cultural heritage. In Zhongshan and Macau, traditions like performing Drunken Dragon dance on Buddha’s birthday are still preserved. A year of interviews to the folklore scholars and travels across the Pearl river delta area tell the passion around Drunken Dragon. Even though they are separated geographically, people in Zhongshan and Macau perform the Drunken Dragon dance every year to express their pride of being the descendants of the dragon.
