Tan's help to inmates


Tan Dun, the Academy Award-winning composer, appears at Shanghai Qingpu Prison to give artistic guidance to the Inmate Art Troupe yesterday. The Inmate Art Troupe of Qingpu Prison was established in July, composed of 30 inmates selected from more than 2,000 prisoners, foreign and domestic. Tan watched their performances of singing and playing instruments and said he was “deeply touched.” Named the honorable artistic adviser and director, Tan will visit again for the first public performance of the art troupe on September 20.
