Lage und Freizeit

Wer organisiert das Projekt?

The project is co-organized by VolTra, Fragrant Village and Ta Kwu Ling/Ping Che Alliance for “Saving Our Home” (Alliance). Mid-autumn festival falls on the 15th day of the eighth lunar month (13 SEP 2019). In the 19th century, villagers began performing a dragon dance to stop a run of bad luck afflicting their village. Accompanied by drummers and erupting firecrackers, The villagers made a huge dragon from straw and covered it with incense sticks. They danced for three days and three nights and the bad luck disappeared. More than a century later, their village has been all but swallowed up by Hong Kong’s fast-growing city. But the dragon keeps on dancing. It has even danced its way onto China’s third national list of intangible cultural heritage. The theme of the workcamp is to appreciate the importance of the local village and its culture. They are going to beautify the village, farming with local people and try the very traditional local food, and the most important thing to do is to set up the event of the Fire Dragon Dance during Mid-autumn Festival.
