【雲上嶺南】Dance drama "Wing Chun" brought gambiered Canton gauze into fashion : Clothing is the culture worn on the body
In early March, the dance drama "Wing Chun" started its first round of national tours in Shenzhen. This dance drama features two intangible cultural heritage: Wing Chun fist and gambiered Canton gauze. The former carries the theme of the story, while the latter is a part of the visual presentation, which is properly integrated into the plot and stage performance.
On the stage, the dancers wore smooth gambiered Canton gauze clothes, showing their aptitude for traditional intangible cultural heritage.
As an ancient dyeing fabric in the Lingnan region, gambiered Canton gauze is made of silk and dyed with plants and minerals. It is known as the "soft gold" in fabrics. This traditional handmade craft has been passed down for hundreds of years.
