A collection of cultural information about Liuzhou or China in general.
Liuzhou museum is located at the north-eastern corner of the city square. It contains local archaeological finds, minority artefacts, Zhuang bronze drums etc. Worth a visit. Very little in the way of English signs, but if you're lucky one of the English speaking guides might be on duty. Entrance is currently ¥15 for adults, ¥5 for students, but it is free if you book in advance.
There are also occasional free special exhibitions on the first floor. More information here.
Liu San Jie
China's most famous film director, Zhang Yimou is directing a musical on the theme of Liu San Jie, the legendary Liuzhou character.
The performances are being held daily at a specially built open air venue in Yangshuo, and the musical director is He Xuntian, the composer who works with Dadawa.
The production has a budget of 200 million yuan (US$24 million), is planned to run for years and is expected to become a major tourist attraction

Liuzhou Song and Dance Troupe
Liuzhou Song and Dance Troupe seldom play Liuzhou as they are so in demand elsewhere, constantly touring China. They have also appeared in the US, Switzerland, Holland, Portugal, Spain, Turkey, Thailand, Singapore and Hong Kong. Their one-night, invitation only performance on the 5th of November, during the stone festival, was their first home appearance since 2000.
I thoroughly recommend going to see them if they are in town again while you are here. Book early though. They are very popular!

Here is a poem by Liu Zongyuan,
which seems rather apt - especially the last two lines!.
A recording of the poem is available here.
