Meeting 12 March 2016


This, the 78th meeting of the London Youlan Qin Society, was held in the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS), University of London.

Some members renewed their annual subscriptions, and four new members joined the Society.

Charles Tsua brought an example of his calligraphy, which he had mounted onto a scroll, and which was hung next to the LYQS banner. He explained how he mounted it. Mounting needs to be done carefully, because the xuan paper used for the artwork is thin and easily becomes crinkled.

  1. Qiu Shui 秋水 (Autumn Water), played by Charles Tsua
  2. Gu Guan Yu Shen 古馆禹神 (Meeting a Ghost in a Desereted House), played by Julian Joseph
  3. Jiu Kuang 酒狂 (Drunken Ecstasy), played by Cheng Yu
