The Zimmers took part in a wonderful evening of entertainment with the Chinese Elderly Art Group staged an eye-opening show at the Queen's Theatre in central London.
The visiting Chinese Elderly Art Group composed of people over 65 in age presented a colorful show mixing traditional Chinese culture with modern dance and music.
Formed 5 years ago, the Chinese Elderly Art Group has performed to great reviews worldwide including Sydney, Melbourne, Paris and Taiwan. The group was brought together to champion values such as respect and support for the elderly, as well as promoting harmony between the generations. The group's world-class abilities are widely regarded as an exemplar in China which counts over 130 million older people.
The finale of the 90-minute show entitled 'East meets West' was a joint performance of "My Generation" with The Zimmers and Chinese artists performing an exclusive version of the UK hit song together.
The show is one of the highlights of the events happening across London for this year's China in London season. Now in its third successful year the two-month season kicked off with the Chinese lantern lighting ceremony at Oxford Circus and the Chinese New Year celebrations and includes events at cultural institutions, galleries, museums and visitor attractions.
China in London aims to give Londoners the opportunity to discover more about the breadth of Chinese culture and traditions and to engage businesses and creative organizations in China.
