This weekend, the Shaolin Warriors of China appear in Manassas and Fairfax with a spectacular new production called “Voices of the Masters.” “An eye-filling evening of ancient legends, ritual ceremonies and wondrous acrobatics,” raves the Washington Times about these dynamic warriors from the Far East, who bring a Family Friendly performance that will be enjoyed by children and adults alike.
Performed by devoted disciples of the Shaolin schools in China, these monks are recognized across the globe for their fierce martial arts prowess and tremendous self-discipline. From an early age, Shaolin monks undergo rigorous training in meditation, relaxation techniques and physical exercise to focus their minds and bodies.
“Voices of the Masters” showcases the diversity of this unique art form, and provides a rare glimpse into the daily lives of these Kung Fu masters and their Zen philosophy.
The Shaolin Warriors perform at the Hylton Performing Arts Center in Manassas on Friday, Nov. 9 at 8 p.m. as part of its Hylton Presentsseason. The ensemble also appears at George Mason University’s Center for the Arts in Fairfax on Saturday, Nov. 10 at 8 p.m. and Sunday, Nov. 11 at 4 p.m. as part of the Center’s Great Performances at Mason season.
