Chinese Opera Puppet 戏曲木偶

 

In history, puppets & chinese opera are interrelated. The gestures of the chinese opera actor are directly inspired by the movements of puppets, and likewise that the very accentuated makeup of the actors is a survival of the painted heads of puppets.

Si Chuan Mask Changing 四川变脸表演

 

变脸艺术起源于上世纪三十年代,最早用于传统折子戏,是川剧表演的特技之一。“变脸”最神奇之处,莫过于演员能在不换场的情况之下,瞬间变出喜、怒、哀、乐多款面谱,以表现剧中人物的情绪。

In this magnificent art of mask-changing literally known as “Bian Lian”, the performer displays the ancient Sichuan opera art of changing faces with an ostentatious movement of the head, and a wave of the hand to skilfully reveal the different face masks again and again in magically quick succession. The painted masks of different facial expressions and their colours reflect a character’s mood – red representing anger and black extreme fury.

The Visual Art of Magic 魔术表演

 

魔术是以随机应变为核心的一种表演艺术,是制造奇迹的艺术。成功的魔术师能够抓住观众的好奇、求知心理的特点,制造出种种让人不可思议、变幻莫测的假象,从而达到以假乱真的艺术效果。

Magic is a craft which focus on the flexibility and quick responses of the performer. Successful magicians are able to arouse and capture the audience’s curiosity and excitement . They are able to create spellbinding visual illusions far beyond our imaginations, engaging our senses in the extraordinary experience of a magical and enchanting fantasy.
