About: Floating Performance is a form of street performance in which kids play the figures in historical stories and are supported on a colored cabinet carried by people.

Floating Performance comprises a colored cabinet, colored hearts, colored foots, colored stems and colored carriers. All the supporting parts are skillfully in disguise so that you see the performers on the top of it without noticing the supporting parts, making you feel as if the performers are floating in the air. Normally, kids from two to thirteen are picked as the “colored hearts” to play the figures in folk stories and historical stories such as Romance of the Three Kingdoms, Water Margin and the Eight Immortals or sacred figures in Taoism and Buddhism.

The colored hearts are usually kids with light weight so as to be “floating” performers. Floating Performance features bright colors, agile colored hearts, thin supporters, ingenious structure and attractive image. Huangpu Town is named as “Hometown of Floating Performance” by the Department of Culture of Guangdong Province in 1998.
