To share our passion for Cantonese opera and Chinese culture at community events to bring together people from all backgrounds and cultures

by Can-Nga Court in Derby, England, United Kingdom

At Can-Nga Court we are passionate about sharing our love of Cantonese opera with the wider community to bring people together from all backgrounds and cultures. We currently do this by performing at community venues in the area but we're now ready to spread our wings and take our performances and hands-on experiences in calligraphy and Cantonese opera make-up to local festivals and fairs. 

Our Crowdfund Derby campaign is to raise money for a gazebo and portable lights which will give us a travelling base from which to demonstrate and share our craft which, as well as opera, also includes the art of calligraphy and professional make-up for Cantonese opera. We are also raising money for calligraphy brushes, ink and special paper and professional make-up so that we can give hands-on demonstrations and let people try out these ancient art forms for themselves. In addition to this we are raising money to pay for rehearsal space to practise sparring - another ancient skill that we are happy to share with people

Can-Nga Court has introduced Cantonese opera to many people and continues to encourage people from different backgrounds to join the group and become involved in cultural activities.

We hope that you will join us on this fund-raising journey - we've created some special pledge rewards that will give you a flavour of what we are about as an organisation, we even offer private performances at a certain pledge level! 

Thank you for reading!
