Cantonese Opera Demonstration and Experiential Workshop

Cantonese opera was inscribed onto the UNESCO's Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity in 2009. It is one type of Chinese traditional theatre, with singing and spoken lines delivered in the Cantonese dialect. The singing style, role types, makeup, stylised movements, libretti and singing scores are all rich in artistic value. It is also highly praised for its social and cultural values when serving as religious dramas presented as part of the ritual of thanksgiving to the deities, or for occasions of jiao festivals.

In this workshop, the instructors will tell you many things you want to know about Cantonese opera, including trivia behind the glittering stage, such as the rules and traditions of an operatic troupe. There will also be demonstrations on the basic routines such as the standing gait, footwork, finger-and-hand movements, making the circular "cloud hands", making the first appearance, and running round the stage etc. The participants will learn the miming movements of opening and closing the door, mounting and dismounting, and the acrobatic skill of spinning a spear.
