If you are provided with a translucent white screen, several shadow puppets and an oil lamp, can you do a fascinating show with them?
More than two thousand years ago, Chinese began to give performances using puppets against an illuminated screen. That is "shadow play", also known as "lamp and shadow play". It is considered "the precursor of movie" because it was the earliest moving art form dubbed with human voice in the world.
During a play, puppeteers hide themselves behind the white screen and move the puppets, while narrating the story, usually through singing. Performances are accompanied by musicians playing percussion and stringed instruments.
Shadow play combines traditional Chinese plastic art and performing art as well as the arts of painting, paper cutting, local opera, and ventriloquism.
