The Sony Centre For The Performing Arts and Easter Seals present the internationally-acclaimed China Disabled People's Performing Arts Troupe (CDPPAT) with MY DREAM.
A beautiful showcase of Chinese cultural traditions, MY DREAM is a hypnotic variety show which includes the dazzling Thousand Hands Dance, scenes from popular Peking Opera, Classical Ballet en pointe, and Jazz Music and Latin Dance. MY DREAM transcends the boundaries of culture, politics, and language to express the creative aspirations of all human beings.
"From its very title, the China Disabled People's Performing Arts Troupe makes no secret of the challenges troupe members have had to overcome in order to perform at a professional level. Yet, watching My Dream, it's easy to forget that they've never heard a note. They do not seek sympathy, but very easily they earn admiration and respect." Michael Crabb, Dance International.
The world-famous Troupe, featuring more than 100 blind and deaf musicians, singers and dancers who performed at the Cultural Festival of the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing, was established in 1987 as a programme of the China Disabled People's Association to advance equal opportunity for artists with disabilities. The Troupe was soon touring internationally, and in 2002, with a well-established repertoire and high level of training, the China Disabled People's Performing Arts Troupe became an independent, professional organization.
