CAAM Chinese Dance Theater Artistic Director Teng Lili and Company present the premier of a two act dance drama, “Homecoming:  A Chinese New Year’s Tale” on Saturday, January 25 and Sunday, January 26, 2014 at the O’Shaughnessy Auditorium of St. Catherine’s University.

Set in a hill-side village in Northern China, “Homecoming:  A Chinese New Year’s Tale” draws upon popular customs and folk dance traditions to impart the joyous anticipation of New Year’s celebrations with loved ones, friends and neighbors.

Two tales intertwine in this dance drama.  In the first story a pair of sisters, longing for their parents return, fall into a deep sleep and dreams of the sights and wonders of the New Year.  The second tale revolves around a young couple who, discovering a New Year’s gift left behind at the train station amidst the hustle and bustle of New Year’s travel, embark on a quest to deliver the gift.

Will the sisters be reunited with their parents?  Will the rightful owner of the gift be discovered?  Don’t miss this chance to see the premier of “Homecoming:  A Chinese New Year’s Tale,” and ring in the Chinese New Year with CAAM Chinese Dance Theater.
