Zheng He-When the Dragon Ships Came

Venue: Central Hall, Edinburgh

Event Date: 09/06/2016 19:00

The Confucius Institute for Scotland in the University of Edinburgh, in association with SCEN, is delighted to present this award winning show, blending puppetry, video and animation. The hour-long show tells the tale of the fantastic journeys of the famous Chinese explorer, Zheng He, whose voyages took him from Indonesia, India and the Arabian coast to Africa- almost 100 years before Christopher Columbus set off to America.
