Parent-Child Stage Play The Legend of Shadow Show to be Staged
The Legend of Shadow Show is about to be staged in Tianqiao, Xicheng District. It’s a creative parent-child stage play produced by Beijing Tianqiao Zenith Investment Group Co., Ltd. and made and operated by Beijing Shadow Play Troupe.
The play combines shadow play art with stage performance, and integrates several kinds of light and shadow arts such as people shadow, shadow play, paper shadow and scene shadow. In addition to authentic and classic Beijing shadow play episodes Prince Nezha’s Triumph Against Dragon King and Flowers and Fruit Mountain, the play also features creative artistic attempts at stage art and music. The music highlights traditional Chinese opera music integrated with modern music. There are also innovative breakthroughs in the design of the stage. There is a circular projection screen in the middle of the sky screen on the stage, which carries the functions of shadow play and rear projection. Moreover, the stage effect also contains the effect of shadow show, allowing the audience to have a real and virtual experience.
After ten performances, the play will be improved and staged in the Tianqiao Performing Area. Beijing Shadow Play Troupe will also present it in schools and communities, launch related cultural innovation products and organize shadow play DIY activity.
The play will debut at Beijing Tianqiao Performing Arts Center on July 5 to 7, and be staged at China Puppet Theater from July 12 to 14.
