In the ancient times, in a faraway village in China, people lived joyously together in harmony with nature. However, every 365 days, a monster called Nian came to terrorize the people, and even their greatest warrior was unable to stop it. So the people prayed to the gods. Then, a wise old man came to them, answering their prayers, and an ingenious invention was created to repel the vicious monster that returned year after year. The renowned Nai-Ni Chen Dance Company’s spectacular telling of the origin of the Chinese New Year Celebration is full of dazzling props, colorful costumes, mesmerizing music, fantastic acrobatics and lively dance.
