Jack and I went to the city this weekend, to catch a Chinese Lion Dance performance. Chinese New Year Day itself was on the 8th of February, however the celebrations continue for 15 days. This year, Chinese New Year coincides with the month-long Perth Fringe Festival, so by default, any celebrations and festivities in relation to Chinese New Year became part of the whole picture forming the Perth cultural landscape for February.
The Yao Lin troupe were performing at Carillon City shopping mall. We managed to catch up with them just as they began their performance.
