Londoner Christopher Johnson is a China expert with a background in show business. As Ivan Inversion the 'Headstanding Funstermentalist he performed his zany variety show on UK stages and television studios, before beginning his Chinese studies at Edinburgh University in 1995. Post-graduation he has been teaching Chinese in England, and English in China, as well as endeavouring to break into the Chinese entertainment market. An appearance on Chinese television as a gutar/vocalist covering the popular Chinese ballad 'Xiao Fang' was highly praised, and was followed by a news item featuring Gongsun Hai (this artist's Chinese name) performing his own Chinese song 'Daoli Ge' (the Headstanding Song). Having expanded his repertoire of Chinese songs, on recent visits to China he has been booked to perform in a variety of bars and clubs in Yunnan province in south-west China. Now, at the beginning of 2011, he is trying to establish contact with people who can assist his ambition to secure bookings in the larger towns and cities in the south and east of China.
