Guang’anmennei Sub-District Diabolo Culture Festival Held Online
The 11th China "Guangnei Cup" Diabolo Invitational cum Guang’anmennei Sub-district Online Diabolo Culture Festival was held recently.
Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, this year’s diabolo culture festival was held online, including online exhibition, online diabolo playing show, and online diabolo playing competition. The exhibition was a prerecorded video, in which an inheritor of the diabolo playing visited the Diabolo Museum and introduced the development of the diabolo. In addition, Guang’anmennei Sub-district collected suggestions on the museum and new diabolo-related exhibits on its WeChat public account. The online diabolo playing show took "everything can be played like a diabolo" as its theme. A professional diabolo performer uploaded a video of diabolo playing on Douyin (TikTok’s Chinese version), and diabolo amateurs uploaded their imitation shows, thus to carry forward the spirit of the diabolo playing. In the online competition, recorded videos from competition areas were sent to local diabolo associations. The associations evaluated the results by themselves, and reported the winners to Beijing Diabolo Association.
The event enhances the diabolo’s influence in fitness-for-all activities, enriches people’s spare time, and promotes the cultural charm of the diabolo playing as an intangible cultural heritage.
