China is the hometown of the shadow play. The Chinese leather shadow play is an ancient and widespread form of folk opera art. Over the past thousand years, folk artists have been casting leather puppets' shadows on a small white curtain while singing and dancing behind it, depicting the ups and downs of the life of the Chinese people.
