Chrysler Executive: The Chinese Spectacular Helps US ‘understand the diversity of China’

Posted by Author on January 26, 2008

By Seth Holehouse, Epoch Times Detroit Staff, Jan 23, 2008-

DETROIT—Coming from a triumphant tour in Canada, The Chinese New Year Spectacular played to a nearly full house at the beautiful Detroit Opera House last night, and businessmen like Chrysler Public Relations/Communications Spokesperson Max Gates learned a lot from the experience.

“Our Chrysler foundation,” Gates explained, “has done a lot of work with the communities, supporting the arts and culture. Many of our employees are very involved in the oriental group, and it is very interesting for me to see some of [the Chinese] culture.”

In fact, “We have been looking forward to the show for a long time,” Gates shared.

And the involvement with China is growing. “At Chrysler,” Gates continued, “we are developing a lot of relations with China. I think that our involvement with China is going to grow very rapidly over the next few years.”

The Spectacular fits a unique need for the American businessman. “The show has helped me understand the diversity of China,” Gates continued. “I am struck by the tremendous range of geography and culture in China, especially the language and artistic expression. The show displays the cultures of Tibet, Mongolia, and other parts of mainland China.”

The contrast with American culture is stark. “We live in a country that is barely 250 years old, and in China we are talking about centuries of culture. It is a very different perspective….It is amazing to see how their history and culture has maintained, “Gates said, “and how important it is to the Chinese people.

Of course, Gates found the show entertaining as well. “I really like[d] the costumes in the bowl dance, the colors are so rich and beautiful. I thought that the bowl dance itself was very beautiful.”

Any chance that this experience will change the corporate community? “I think we should get a drum group going at Chrysler,” Gates exclaimed, “that would really inspire the workers!”

There are still plenty of opportunities to experience the magic of the Chinese New Year Spectacular. Following this Detroit performance, Diving Performing Arts will play one show in Minneapolis on January 24, and three more in Chicago on January 25 and 26. The Spectacular is also playing January 23-26 in San Francisco. See Bestchineseshows.com for details. The Epoch Times is a proud sponsor of the Chinese New Year Spectacular.
