The 6th MEET IN BEIJING Arts Festival

With Mexico as honour guest country, Meet in Beijing 2006 introduced the theme “People’s Festival” and explored classic art forms from Mexico, Italy, Russia and France, as well as Chinese heritage. It also aimed to present culture from various countries with intensity, hence the installation of the guest country, the Italian Cultural Festival, Russian Cultural Festival, and Croisements: French Festival in China.

Tickets were sold at an affordable price and some performances were staged in public squares, in the countryside, and on university campus at part of the festival’s commumity outreach endeavour.

Some of the dances were hugely welcomed, including the opening Wind of Colourful Guizhou, L'arlesienne and Raymonda – a co-production with France, Swan Lake by Korea National Ballet, and galas by Russian Little Birch, Mexican artists and Micha van Hoecke. The concerts were equally received including a choral concert by Lyonnais, French opera gala, chamber music and Li Biao percussions. In the drama sector, there were the China-France co-production Rhinoceros and Love in a Fallen City by Hong Kong Repertory Theatre.

The festival welcomed artists coming from over 20 countries giving altogether 100 perfomances. It was truely a celebration of the people.
