Chengdu Museum, 5F


Chinese shadow play is a kind of folk art with time-honored history and rich cultural connotations. It boasts the essences of traditional appearance and performance, and is a major representative of China’s oral and intangible cultural heritage. Rising from the fertile soil of traditional Chinese culture, bathing in changes across millennia, it has made itself into a legend that casts its shadow far beyond China. By virtue of exquisite appearance, consummate skills, pleasant voices, and abundant stories, Chinese shadow plays show unfading charm among performing arts all over the world.
