Nova Scotia is and has been for a while, as I like to call it, Canada’s best kept secret. Let’s face it, we are pretty isolated from many cultures and can be inundated with the stereotypical images we are fed through the media. The chance to peer into an authentic production of story-telling, dance and music composed by established award winning Chinese artists will be an enriching worldly experience. Coming with real-life tales from across the planet, you’ll only have to go as far as the Dunn to come out feeling closer to this intricate and astoundingly rich artistic practice.
