When it comes to awakening lion, people would mention Foshan. As a national historical and cultural city, Foshan is one of the birthplaces of Lingnan and Guangfu culture. It is also a famous city of martial arts and the birthland of Southern lion.
On May 20, 2006, Guangdong awakening lion dance was approved by the State Council to be included in the first batch of national intangible cultural heritage. As a unique intangible cultural heritage project, Guangdong awakening Lion Dance has two characteristics. One is lion head production; the other is the traditional lion dance performance.
Lion head production dates back to the Emperor Qianlong period of Qing dynasty with a history of more than 200 years. Foshan awakening lion heads absorb the makeup features of Cantonese opera. Different types of lion heads have different faces, and they can be majestic, or kind, or brave. Their styles are exaggerated and romantic. Commonly there are the yellow lion, the red lion and the black lion, respectively corresponding to Liu Bei, Guan Yu and Zhang Fei in the Romance of the Three Kingdoms.
The combination of martial arts and Foshan lion dance is the core feature. On the basis of the original Southern awakening lion skills, the grandmaster Wong Fei-hung arranged into a set of new awakening lion routine integrating into dance, martial arts, acrobatics, strength, aesthetics. It is has been passed down to the present day with excellent skills and great ornamental value.
The lion dance bears a responsibility both in the history of China and in the promotion of communication at home and abroad. At this time, the skin characterized by southern lion dance will promote the culture of lion dance and contribute to the development of traditional culture in the new era.
