Artist Ma Liang hosts a lecture on the history of photography at the Hall of the Sun.

The Ruihong Tiandi Arts Festival, under the theme of "Life Shines at Show Time," opened over the weekend near the North Bund waterfront in Hongkou District.

The festival features three main sections: immersive theater and mobile arts, world ethnic music, and stage drama.

It began with a theatrical performance by artist Ma Liang and his team on Saturday, offering a diverse and innovative experience.

The exhibits include five large mobile installations, including the Sphinx, Monkey King and Sweet Demon King and three smaller mobile installations, combining aesthetics, low-tech, steampunk and cyberpunk art styles.

They will parade across the malls and shopping hubs at the Ruihong Tiandi through September 24.

In conjunction with the Mid-Autumn Festival, which falls on September 29 this year, the "Moonlight Concert" will combine local ethnic and Western pop music elements, presenting nearly 50 high-quality and unique musical performances.

As part of the ongoing Shanghai Tourism Festival, the Xintiandi World Music Festival 2023 will feature multiple Chinese bands from southern provinces and showcase their original works.

It also invites world music groups for cross-national and cross-ethnic collaborations, celebrating the diversity of world music.

In late October, the Sun Theater at the Hall of the Sun will come alive in the central courtyard of the mall with eight renowned domestic and international theater productions. This will allow consumers to appreciate the charm of Chinese intangible cultural heritage and overseas classic puppetry art.

Taihang Art Troupe will present "Fire and Dance," a mobile art form inspired by the shamanic era, at the Hall of the Moon. Fire dancers will use body movement, dance, arrangement and light to depict vivid and vibrant fire imagery.

The arts festival aims to create a life-social scene, introducing cutting-edge art elements from around the world, enhancing the inheritance of local culture and igniting cultural curiosity in urban communities, according to the Ruihong Tiandi.
