A change of venue today — not China, but Taiwan in 2008.

This roughly 10 minute piece was recorded on behalf of storyteller Diane Wolkstein as she conducted her research into the Monkey King Epic (also known as Journey to the West). Come along for a little while as she and her teacher Sat Hon take more than a passing glimpse into the culture that has grown around Su Wukong.

Another Tumblr membert, lotusprince, found this amazing depiction of our “Great Sage Equal to Heaven” (uh-huh, uh-huh)… made entirely from Chinese characters (and spotted on China Daily’s China Forum BBS).
You see? Su Wukong ("awake to emptiness") truly gets around.

Following on  last night’s Journey to the West (西游记) post, I saw this wonderful illustration of four of the Monkey King Epic’s main characters, from wingedtoad's Tumblr site. 
What a wonderful start. Keep going!

The one and only Diane Wolkstein (our biggest and most generous supporter) offers the “Havoc in Heaven” episode of Journey to the West (also known as the Monkey King Epic) for family audiences at New York University’s Provincetown Playhouse.
