Mao's Last Dancer the Exhibition: A Portrait of Li Cunxin

Museum of Brisbane

1st December - 19th April

Discover one man’s incredible journey from poverty to world-famous artist in this exclusive Museum of Brisbane exhibition.

Featuring never-before-seen interviews, performance footage and personal artefacts this exhibition is an intimate portrait of a contemporary Australian icon.

Born into bitter poverty, Li Cunxin few up in a world few of us can imagine. Through the chance of fate, he was selected to attend Madame Mao’s Beijing Dance Academy at age 11. Despite the Academy’s punishing training regime, with perseverance and the love of his family driving him to success, Li became one of China’s most celebrated dancers.

In this world-first exhibition is an opportunity to intimately discover Li Cunxin’s deeply moving personal narrative, his remarkable artistic achievements and the extraordinary impact he continues to have on the lives of so many within and outside the dance community.
