About the Show
The Nai Ni Chen Dance Company presents a spectacular production of props, costumes, music, acrobatics, and dance by top-notch performers, telling the story of the origin of the Chinese Lunar New Year. In this legend, a group of villagers working, dancing, and praying together defeat a terrifying monster of the ages. It explains some of the origins of the Chinese Lunar New Year when everyone is wearing red, giving red envelopes to children, putting up red decorations, and lighting up all the dark corners with red firecrackers to make loud noises.
This program is paid for in part by the Ocean County Board of Chosen Freeholders in conjunction with funds from the NJ State Council on the Arts and the NJ Historical Commission through the Ocean County Culture & Heritage Commission, Freeholder Virginia E. Haines, chairwoman.
