Many colorful theatrical activities can be found throughout China. The best known and most unique of these is perhaps traditional Chinese opera, which has a history of over 800 years. However, since the early twentieth century, following increased contact with the West, drama without music has also become popular in China. The development and prosperity of modern drama has created a new landscape for Chinese theater, which, as a whole, has become more diverse. In this illustrated introduction Fu Jin explores the origins and development of this distinctive branch of the Chinese arts.
Fu Jin is a Professor of the National Academy of Chinese Theater Arts, a researcher at the Institute of Chinese Intangible Cultural Heritage, Sun Yat-sen University and doctoral advisor at the China Art Academy. He has published widely on the history, modernization and localization of Chinese theater.
