In September, Brazil organized cultural events in Beijing, Shanghai and Hong Kong. Now the favor is being repaid with China Cultural Month touring Brazil’s main cities.
Over one hundred fifty artists from China are presenting Brazilian audiences with a series of cultural events including ballet, acrobatics and art exhibitions. During the course of a night of Chinese dance, the ballet Concerto de Bach and the traditional folk dance Jasmine Flower were performed by Chinese artists at the sold-out Theatro São Pedro in the country’s largest city, São Paulo.
“China and Brazil have a new highlight now in cultural exchange, whereas before the economic and technological fields ruled. Brazilian people are very interested in Chinese culture,” said Zhu Qingqiao of the Chinese embassy in Brazil.
