Kung fu enthusiasts would be happy to know that this magnificent martial art form will be on full display at Resorts World Genting.

A total of 22 shows are scheduled, with each screening lasting 90 minutes (with 10 minutes intermission).

A critically acclaimed show that earned a nomination at the 63rd Tony Awards in 2009, it has held more than 500 performances worldwide in such countries as the US, Australia, Italy, Norway, India, Korea, Turkey, Macau, Hong Kong, and Turkey. When it opened at Marquis Theater on Broadway in January 2009, all its seven performances were sold out— and Jan 15 was promptly proclaimed China on Broadway Day by New York City.

Billed as China’s key cultural export project by China’s Ministry of Culture, Ministry of Commerce, the State Administration of Radio, Film & Television, and the General Administration of Press and Publication, the event is deemed “the Best of China” and is brought to you by Asian Arts Connection.

Soul of Shaolin: Hui Guang’s Story is a stirring portrait of the life of a Shaolin monk. The tale begins with a woman who is forced to abandon her son when she finds herself pursued by a group of bandits. The woman hides her child among tall grass before jumping off a cliff in her effort to evade capture.

The child is later found by Na Luo, a Shaolin kung fu monk, who also picks up a piece of broken jade he finds near the former. Years go by, and the child, named Hui Guang, grows strong and healthy—raised and taught by Na Luo and also Miao Xing, the abbot of Shaolin Temple. Hui Guang’s past is not hidden from him; the truth is revealed to him, along with the piece of jade.

Depressed upon learning about his tragic past, Hui Guang gets drunk and ends up provoking other monks. He is then punished by Miao Xing who places him in a cave known as Bodhidharma. As it turns out, Hui Guang learns about being a paragon of virtue—that it is the real soul of Shaolin.

The story continues with him later crossing paths with his mother. Still out looking for her son, she once again finds herself in trouble when she runs into some ruffians. Hui Guang and Na Luo come to her aid, and while fighting off the hoodlums, the former loses his piece of broken jade. When his mother comes upon it later, she searches for him at his temple.

Mother and son are reunited and both wish to leave the temple to begin life anew. Unfortunately, temple rules dictate that a monk that wishes to leave, must fight his way out. As it turns out, the final opponent Hui Guang must face is Na Luo—and the latter chooses to fake his vanquishing in order to help Hui Guang. The story thus ends well, with Hui Guang and his mother leaving the temple to start a new life.
