Don’t miss unique traditional shadow puppetry performances by the Taishan Shadow Puppet Art Troupe, as they present performance excerpts from classics such as Shi Gandang Fights the Evil Wolf, Frog-Turtle-Crane and more.

Taishan shadow puppetry has a history of more than 600 years. The earliest record about the art form is in the book Tao Wu Xian Ping from the Ming dynasty. In 2006, it was listed in the first batch of China’s National List of Intangible Cultural Heritage and in 2011, it was listed as UNESCO World Intangible Cultural Heritage. This folk art is usually performed by a single performer who recites dialogue, sings songs, manipulates the puppet, and plays the instruments by his feet, all at the same time. It is also called “Shi Bu Xian” and currently being preserved and passed down by the Fan family from the Taishan Shadow Puppet Art Troupe.
