Flower Moon Lantern Riddles

August 31 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

$20 - $25
Clarion celebrates the Chinese Mid-Autumn Festival with poetry, music and lantern riddles.
Fusing poetry, music, theater and art, Flower Moon Lantern Riddles features poems from the present to the 7th century BCE. Some of these poems will be sung in ancient melodies as well as modern compositions. Poems are recited in Cantonese and English.
Solving riddles on lanterns was a form of group entertainment in ancient China. We will recreate this activity and give out prizes for those who guess the correct answers. There will also be riddles to take home to be solved at a later time.
Artist Dennis Tom is designing the back drop for this production and more of his work will be showcased in our gallery.
