When the mightiest of the river gods, the Golden Dragon King, is provoked by a foolish man, the enraged waters of the Yellow River threaten to overwhelm the village. Priests and villagers alike scramble to appease the Golden Dragon King without success, until a simple storyteller steps forward. Combining live storytelling by Ruoh-Yeng Chang and performances by harpist Jia Jia Yong and the 5 Elements Drums and Lion Dance Crew, Tales for a River god weaves together Chinese folktales and captivating performances in a celebration of the wonder and power of stories.
