Taming the Kung Fu Dragon takes the audience on a journey with two rival martial arts experts at the point of their final battle. It traces the learning, spirituality, dedication and discipline behind what it takes to become a great fighter whilst also exploring their paths towards peace.

Drawing upon the Japanese concept of Bushido, meaning the ‘way of the warrior’ this work will appeal to both dance enthusiasts and a wide range of martial art fans through an interesting synthesis of ancient martial arts tradition and contemporary dance.

It’s been produced by the prestigious Balbir Singh Dance Company and is part of a new scheme promising world-class dance and music to over 10,000 people in the North of England.

The show also forms part of Spot On Lancashire’s autumn season of touring, taking professional arts events to rural venues and libraries across the county.
