Theatrical Performance of True Chinese Martial Arts!
I am sure everyone would agree that Shaolin Kung Fu is second to none among the oldest institutionalized styles of Chinese Martial Arts in terms of beauty and artistry. It’s definitely our pleasure to know that this magnificent martial art form is on full display at Resorts World Genting when the theatrical event, Soul Of Shaolin: Hui Guang’s Story takes centre stage from 28th May 2017 till 26th June 2017.

Soul of Shaolin: Hui Guang’s Story is a critically acclaimed show that has earned a nomination at the 63th Tony Awards in 2009, it has held more than 500 performances worldwide in countries like US, Australia, Italy, Norway, India, Korea, Turkey, Macau, Hong Kong, and Turkey. When it opened at Marquis Theatre on Broadway in January 2009, all of its seven performances were sold out.

The show will be held at Genting International Showroom at 9pm or 4pm* from 28th May 2017 to 26th June 2017. There will be two shows – at 4pm and 9pm – on 24th June 2017. A total of 22 shows are scheduled, with each screening lasting 90 minutes (with 10 minutes intermission).

Billed as China’s key cultural export project by China’s Ministry of Culture, Ministry of Commerce, the State Administration of Radio, Film & Television, and the General Administration of Press and Publication, the event is deemed “The Best Of China” and is brought to you by Asian Arts Connection.

Short Synopsis:
Soul of Shaolin: Hui Guang’s Story is a stirring portrait of the life of a Shaolin monk. The tale begins with a woman who is forced to abandon her son when she finds herself pursued by a group of bandits. The woman hides her child among tall grass before jumping off a cliff in her effort to evade capture.

The child is later found by Na Luo, a Shaolin Kung Fu Monk, who also picks up a piece of broken jade he finds near the former. Years go by, and the child, named Hui Guang, grows strong and healthy – raised and taught by Na Luo and also Miao Xing, the abbot of Shaolin Temple. Hui Guang’s past is not hidden from him; the truth is revealed to him, along with the piece of jade.

Will Hui Guang finally able to reunite with his mother? Let’s find out in the Soul of Shaolin: Hui Guang’s Story which is taking place in Genting International Showroom from 28th May 2017 to 26th June 2017.

Great Kung Fu Demonstrated On Stage!
Never in my life that I thought that I would be able to witness real genuine kung fu being performed on stage. To see the performers do all the high jumps, splits, wushu steps in firm, sturdy yet flexible state is something beyond breathtaking! There was definitely no steel wires attached to the performers as they jumped up till almost 2-3 storey high with merely their own strength! Their fists and kicks were solid and trust me, you wouldn’t want to mess with them in real life!

In addition, it’s definitely mind-blowing to see some stunts which we usually see in Hong Kong Martial Arts Movies like “Stone-Cracking on Chest”, “Bending Spears with Neck”, “Pin-hole Needle bursting Balloon” stunts to be presented LIVE on stage. It’s totally unbelievable and amazing!

Great Interactions With The Audiences!
Besides of having a great martial arts performances, the show also good at interacting with the crowds. They have picked up a few audiences on stage and the performers actually taught these lucky ones some shaolin kung fu arts. Imagine learning real “Toad Kungfu” with the real kung fu practitioner, wouldn’t it be astonishing?

Apart from all these, the show actually has a great plot and amazing on-stage acting too!

Overall, I am really impressed with the show and this is definitely one of the Best Performing Arts show which I have ever seen in my life!

Highly recommended for people who love wushu and performing arts! Don’t miss it! You should catch the show at Genting International Showroom before it’s too late!
