Tai Hang Fire Dragon, Hong Kong
Shuaib Yeung , September 2013
The streets of Tai Hang were filled with choking clouds of incense, drums, cymbals and roars from the audience as a 67-metre-long fire dragon twisted its way through tight alley ways and roads. The traditional event has been held annually in Tai Hang since 1880 when, according to legend, it was first performed to cleanse a village of the plague. Today's contemporary dance performed under the full moon in the Mid-Autumn Festival harks back to the legend: driving out bad luck just as it supposedly drove out the plague over a century ago.
