The two signature shows of the Hunan Acrobatic Art Theatre – Tour of Dream and Happy Chinese New Year, have been staged for nearly 600 times attracting nearly 700,000 audiences around the world. 
During the season, 150 “Splendid Hunan” photography exhibitions will open in 100 European cities. Foreign visitors can learn about Hunan’s landscapes, culture, and social development through performances and photos. All the stage props and photographic exhibits are shipped to Spain and Germany. 
The Hunan Performance Group firstly launched the “New Year Performance Season” in 2015 which has become a key cultural event and brand of the province. In the coming New Year and Chinese Spring Festival, more than 300 performances will be staged at home and abroad, including symphony, folk music, acrobatics, songs and dances, drama, and child play. Beyond that, performance troupes will go to entertain villagers at remote and poverty-stricken areas, such as Shibadong Village in Xiangxi and Jiaheping Village in Sangzhi.
