About the Chinese shadow puppetry
Shadow play, also known as shadow puppetry, is an ancient form of storytelling and entertainment which uses flat articulated cut-out figures (shadow puppets) which are held between a source of light and a translucent screen or scrim.
This is a new art performance on the Cambridge stage, directed by Mr. Yu, Ningyuan and performed by Cambridge residents. The history of shadow puppet performances during the Mid-Autumn Festival can be traced back to Emperor Wu of the Han Dynasty who made shadow puppets in memory of his beloved concubine. It represents that when the energy of summer is fading, we work with the inner light to defeat shadows and death, and present the value and meaning of life. . The story of “Chang’e Flying to the Moon” is told every Mid-Autumn Festival because there is a desire in each of us for Chang’e to fly to the full moon and meet her other half Hou Yi on the day of the Mid-Autumn Festival. The night of the Mid-Autumn Festival is a day for family reunions and perfect peace shared across the world.
