Poster for Wushu Fusion

Watch 400 wushu artistes move to the speed of wind in a powerful blend of wushu martial arts and contemporary dance choreographed in the biggest wushu event of the year. 

“Wushu Fusion” is a showcase of ten different art elements of wushu in one exciting show performed by junior wushu artistes from schools and the Lee Wushu Arts Theatre apprentice team with special guest appearance by a Malay silat group. 

In recent years, Lee Wushu Arts Workshop has established a reputation, both locally and abroad, for presenting brilliant shows of artistry in a creative blend of wushu martial arts with modern dance.  A powerful drama directed by Lee Swee Seng, Artistic Director and Choreographer of Lee Wushu Arts Theatre, entitled, “Farewell, My Concubine: The Movement of the Martyr” was presented in the 7th Johor Baru Arts Festival.

This was followed by “Wushu Madness,” a dance drama in a clever mix of contemporary dance with wushu martial arts that portrayed the insanity of our daily rat race, for the 8th JB Arts Fest.  Lee Wushu’s performances at the Georgetown Arts Festival in Penang and the International Youth Arts Festival in London, also received wide acclaim.

“Wushu Fusion” is organized by Lee Wushu Arts Theatre and Lee Wushu Arts Workshop in collaboration with the Johor State Department of Education and the Wushu Federation of Johor.  Come and be wowed by young wushu artistes from SJK (C) Foon Yew 1, Foon Yew 4, Foon Yew 5, SJK (C) Kempas, SJK (C) Tampoi, SJK (C) Pei Hwa, and young silat exponents from Johor Baru.
