The ‘Parade through Macao, Latin City’, organized by the Cultural Affairs Bureau, was officially renamed as ‘Macao International Parade’ starting from 2017, providing local arts groups a performance platform to express their creativity while encouraging participants to showcase their creative talent so as to increase competitiveness. It aims to promote the diversified development of Macao’s cultural industries and create opportunities for local artists to observe and conduct exchange activities with international performing groups.
The “Macao International Parade” is one of the main events in celebration of the Anniversary of Macao’s Handover to China. This year, VIVA received a secret order from the heavens to gather folklore from China and the Portuguese-speaking countries.
VIVA went to several countries to meet the just rooster, the enamored Sun, the thankful crocodile, the white-nosed monkey who plays drum, the protector of nature… VIVA obtains magic powers from each legend and gathers the elite artists from Macao and all over the world in order to offer the public a feast of “Love, Peace and Cultural Integration” in celebration of the handover!
