China’s disabled art troupe to debut in Cuba


HAVANA, Feb. 7 — The China Disabled People’s Performing Art Troupe will debut in Cuba to present its show “My Dream” at Havana’s National Theater over the weekend.
“Some people were denied some gifts, but it is still possible to choose one’s attitude toward life, look on the positive side, and face it with a joyful and grateful heart,” said Tai Lihua, director of the troupe.
The troupe consists of two teams, which allow it to perform in different countries at the same time. So far, it has performed in more than 30 countries in Asia, Europe, America and Oceania.
Its repertoire includes about 150 shows, characterized by its artistic elegance and spiritual depth.
The troupe’s members have won world recognition. The World Association of Persons with Disabilities named them “Ambassadors of the disabled” and “Torchbearers of special art,” while the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) hailed them as “Artists for Peace.”[db:内容2]
