Creative Media Dragon Parade
Date : 28/10/2011
Time : 4pm
Route : University Circle, City University of Hong Kong to Run Run Shaw Creative Media Centre
A spectacular dragon will parade from the CityU main campus to the Creative Media Centre, where a ritual dragon dance will be performed. The head and tail are of a traditional Chinese dragon, while artist Tjebbe van Tijen has designed a new body for it. Built by dragon master Wu Da Lai, its 99 scales show images contributed by students and staff of CityU. After the parade the dragon will transform itself into a huge banner that will be slowly raised up inside the Creative Media Centre’s nine-floor-high iconic stairwell. The banner shows an undulating visual display of dragons in search of wisdom pearls, diving to the bottom of the oceans and flying up to the stars. This banner hoisting performance will be filmed in 3D and projected live in the Creative Media Centre’s Multimedia Theatre, as the concluding event of the Grand Opening Ceremony. (approx. 5:45pm).
