“Golden Autumn Gala Night"
In September 2004 Chinese Mid–Autumn Moon Festival ACCCA successfully organised the Art Troupe of China to perform “Golden Autumn Gala Night" - Chinese Super Star Show 2004 at the Gold Coast Convention & Exhibition Centre. Shining with great number of most popular stars, the troupe included Liu Bin, Wei Wei, Yu Wenhua, A Duo, Zhang Jinlai, Lin Feng and Zheung Ming Man etc, of more than 40 performers consisting of popular singers, actors, magicians, comedians and dancers, as well as very famous TV director and MCs who were particularly popular. This celebrating event was the first time in Australia combined mainland China, Taiwan and Hong Kong stars performed together and it proved being brilliant operation.
With the support from China International Culture Association, in February 2005 ACCCA organised the Tibetan Art Troupe presenting “Yarlha Shanbo" - Tibetan Dance & Music Show 2005 at the Queensland Performing Arts Complex in Brisbane and Gold Coast Art Centre. This was the first time we worked to promote Chinese performing art into mainstream society in Australia. Her Excellency, the Governor of Queensland, Ms Quentin Bryce AC, along with many other distinguished guests attended the show. We surely made contribution in promotion Tibetan traditional music and dance.
With the support of the Chinese Embassy and the Brisbane Consulate, ACCCA organised the China Disabled People’s Performing Art Troupe to tour Australia and presented in Sydney, Canberra, Brisbane, Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth its amazing spectacular show of “My Dream". The performance achieved great success and was warmly welcomed by all Australian audiences. In particular the dance “Avalokitesvara Bodhisattva" moved the hearts of every attendee.
After the presentation in Brisbane QPAC Concert Hall, ACCCA arranged a function for the Chinese disabled artists to meet with local disabled people. ACCCA also made a donation to local organizations serving the needs of people with special needs.
“Music in Splendid Attire"
ACCCA’s most bold trial in promotion Chinese performing arts was in April 2006 to work jointly with A-List Entertainment and Laing Special Events bringing in the China National Orchestra to tour 11 Australian cities presenting its well acclaimed show “Music in Splendid Attire". ACCCA was in charge to organise five presentations at Brisbane, Gold Coast, Ipswich, Toowoomba and Nambour in Queensland.
The tour was great success and overwhelming. The Queensland government and local city councils issued five media release especially for the tour and the local newspapers and TV widely reported and covered the show. The visit of China National Orchestra became an important cultural event in Queensland and ACCCA is proud of being able to contribute in promotion Chinese national music to overseas.
