Danse! Danse! Bruce Ling!

Recorded show on film

Vocalisations, dance, martial arts and music are combined in this miniature stage show. Dressed in a Bruce Lee costume, we see his look-alike Bruce Ling, holding a hammer and sickle while executing a series of Fung Fu moves and classic or contemporary dance steps, parodying with utmost seriousness Chinese Communist entertainments of the period. A pianist accompanies the actions with a romantic and melancholic version of the theme tune of The Way of the Dragon and the show’s simple storyline culminates in the destruction of a large earthenware pot. 

Performers: YAO Qingmei and pianist Chen Junkai,  12 min. 

coutumière: Sharon Jones
