Dragon Dance, China Town


Chinese Dragon Dance is traditionally performed during the New Year celebrations. In this case however, it was performed with intention to bring good luck to a function held by a bank in Sydney’s China Town. The dance lasted about 30 minutes and was visibly physically demanding on the performers. Colourful, red and gold costumes as well as very loud drums brought attention of countless passers by.

Little joys


I’ve photographed this interestingly dressed man in Sydney’s China Town. We were both watching a Dragon Dance performed by a very skilled group of young man. The show was very captivating and literally stopped traffic. The show was intended for a function in a local bank and it turned into a street spectacle for all.
