A high-quality performance by the
China Disabled People’s Performing Art Troupe – CDPPAT

In 1987, about 30 disabled persons who loved arts were approved to participate in the 1st China Art Festival and founded the China Disabled People’s Performing Art Troupe (CDPPAT).
In the first 13 years, CDPPAT was an amateur organization with low arts level and the performers aimed to pass the idea of “Equality and Participation”.
In 2000, CDPPAT created the large-scale Music & Dance MY Dream by the unique performing way and improved to professional level.
In 2002, CDPPAT entered the cultural market and made their commercial shows successful and got recognition by audience.
In 2004, CDPPAT turned into a professional arts group from an amateur one. With the aspiration of being “Truth, Honesty and Virtue” and human spirit of “Harmony and love”, CDPPAT has became uplifting.
 
There are 110 disabled performers and 37 staff members in CDPPAT. The average age of disabled performers is 20 and that of the staff members, 29. The President, Art Director, Dance Arranger and Music Arranger are all disabled people. With a philosophy based on self-respect, self-confidence, self-improvement and self-reliance, as well as mutual respect, mutual care, mutual aid and mutual complementarities. They design and create program, train performers, produce promotional and audiovisual products, and also publicity and marketing. The troupe has got two teams of performers to be able to perform in two different countries and regions at the same time. They have also set up a trainee team aimed at training young talents.
