Reston Presents is a bi-monthly lecture and presentation series that highlights the multifaceted talents of local residents. Reston Presents, is co-sponsored by the Reston Association and the Reston Community Center. This month features…What comes to mind when mentioning Chinese culture? Kung-fu, dragon dancing or maybe even Chinese food? These are some of the most well-known cultural elements to people in the West. However, the essence of traditional Chinese culture and arts is much richer and more profound. This workshop will give audience members an insightful perspective. Through photo slides and video, Dong Xiang will discuss: the essence of Chinese culture and its traditional values; how and why it was nearly lost, the unfolding of a renaissance of traditional Chinese culture and the driving force behind it. Mr. Xiang is the Executive Director of the Falun Dafa Association of D.C., which has been responsible for presenting the classical Chinese dance show Shen Yun at The Kennedy Center.
