Kungfu Revelations

 Kungfu Revelations 9 Scrolls

The Kung Fu Star Performing Group made its debut at The Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino on December 10, 2010 to a standing ovation on their opening night. Kungfu Revelations: 9 Scrolls tells the story of the nine virtues of man’s spiritual struggle, Purity, Sutra, Diligence, Spirit, Listening, Shape, Devotion, Serenity and Paradise.

Directed by choreographer Liu Zhen, the show is a mixture of dance, music and masterful acrobatics by the young masters who range in age from the age of eight to 22 years old.

Kungfu Revelations is a combination of Chinese dance and martial arts. It portrays the soul of the Chinese culture in its love and purity.

The artists give a compelling performance as they guide the audience through the Chinese culture and philosophy that pierces the soul. I found myself in the state of peace and love during the 90 minute show. I didn’t want it to end.

The stage production shows the ancient traditions through the dance and music which is poetic and dramatic. I loved Kungfu Revelations and I went back to see the show again and loved it all over again. I highly recommend seeing this show when they come back to Las Vegas.

On Wednesday I was invited to the wrap party at Emporer’s Garden in Chinatown and I spent some time with the young performers, Yu Yang, President of Poly Agency, Water Xu , Marketing director and Anthony Lu, promoter. Yu Yang put this group together in 2003 and they have been performing in China and other parts of the world.

Yu Yang has personally selected the young men after having visited over 100 of the best martial arts schools in China. When I asked him what it is that he looks for he said he looked for faces with the Eastern look and their performances. Bao Tianyu is the youngest at eight years and entered the group when he was five years old. I wondered how the parents could let a young child go at this young age and he said the parents know and have the confidence that they will be taken care of. They have worked in Jackie Chan movies and have gone on to be TV and film stars.
Miao Shugi Feng entered at four years old and is a star in Bejing, China. He showed his agility as he gave me a private showing outside the restaurant.

The Kungfu stars practice seven days a week, four times a day for two hours to keep up their mastery for the 9 Scrolls. They all live together in a dormitory as brothers. They are gentle, respectful souls.

All must end with a good meal and we certainly did receive a fabulous ten course dinner at the Emporers Garden. The food was outstanding and I will be going back again.

This show sucks and is really boring. I was hoping for more action, but it never happened. Save your money and go see the volcano erupt for free at The Mirage.
