Red Theatre KungFu Show ( Legend of KungFu Beijing)

Theatre Introduction

Thousands of years ago, in a mysterious land called the Middle Kingdom, many legends were created, martial arts was one of them, made famous by its name KongFu.

In an ancient temple perched high on the side of a mountain, we encounter a little boy, throuth practicing Zen Buddhism and Kong Fu, our little monk everntually grows and finally reaches the sacred goal of enlightenment.

Scene 1:Initiation
The little monk arrives at the temple, but being of an adventurous spirit, he can not settle into the strict discipline of the temple. So his master demonstrates his unbelievable powers, and soon he realizes that this is the only way for him, and so is initiated into the temple and given the name Chun Yi which means the pure one.
Scene 2:Learning
The little monk is studying Zen and Kongfu very hard, he soon masters many Kongfu skills. The years have passed by and the boy becomes a man.
Scene 3:Casting
The razor sharp swords are created from the sweat and toil of the blacksmiths. After many years of similar toil, Chun Yi transforms his body into iron.
Scene 4:Illusion
During any form of spiritual growth, the biggest obstacle we encounter is ourselves. Chun Yi can not suppress his natural desires, and so chases the illsion of the beautiful fairy he has created in his mind, and hence can not continue with his Buddhist practices.
Scene 5:Remorse
The monk Chun Yi loses his way of Buddhist practices, and so damages his Kongfu. Once the illusion has gone, Chun Yi suffers from great remorse, and punishes himself and then meditated longing to be liberated from all earthly desires. Finally he returns to the path of enlightenment, he demonstrates his strong will and courage by breaking metal and stone with his iron body.
Scene 6:Passing through the gate
Passing through the temple gate is a glorious ritual for a monk; he must achieve this final task to become a warrior monk. Chun Yi, having freed himself of his ego, he now fears nothing; he and his fellow monks have demonstrated their courage and heroism in winning the battle.
After his long and arduous journey his old master passes on the stave to him, and he becomes the Zen master, the old master lights the funeral pyreto celebrate the end of this life.
