Episode 520. The Three Eccentrics

Published by austin on

fullsizerenderThe Eight Eccentrics of Tianqiao stand outside the Tianqiao Performing Arts Center in Beijing, where we performed last weekend. Or at least their statues do. They represent eight comic street performers who “made greatly contributions to China’s national folk art by creating the bottom culture of the imbalanced society.” And how! We three eccentrics examine our eight cultural predecessors, try to figure out which ones we resemble most, and ponder the possibility of adding to their number. (Length 18:26)
