Ancient Chinese Shadow Play Brings Joy to Stockholm

Ancient Chinese Shadow Play Brings Joy to Stockholm    On 5 June, a group of special Swedish friends came to the China Cultural Center in Stockholm, where the Ma-style Shadow Play from China’s Anhui Province is already awaiting. The venue of the shadow play was once the castle of Queen Cristina of Sweden in the 17th century. The dome structure is exquisite, lovely, and artistic. When sunlight shone through the window of the dome and blended with the soft pink light within, it gave the venue a dream-like atmosphere. The Anhui Ma-style Shadow Play required only a simple traditional style stage commonly seen in the Chinese countryside. Under the reflection of sunlight and stage lighting, two exquisitely and skillfully crafted Chinese Long, or dragon, appeared on the curtain playing with each other to the cheerful music, making the audience feel like being in a warm and joyful Oriental paradise.

Chinese Shadow Theatre

The Hefei Mapai Shadow Theatre Troup is coming to Sweden for the first time, playing for children. Shadow Theatre has a tradition of 2000 years, starting in Han-dynasty, but now unfortunately on its way to vanish, so this is a quite rare occasion. The scene is simple; it is the delicate performance that attracts the audience. Shadows of flat leather sculptures are projected on a white fabric screen with light, creating mysterious sceneries. The stage take place in a small beautiful arch in Queen Kristinas castle, perfect for a rear-illuminated puppet show. Free entrance. Duration: 60 min (divided into two plays à 30 min.) Dates: June 3 at 17.30 June 4 at 9.00, 13.00 and 17.00 June 5 at 9.00   Place: China Cultural Center Västra Trädgårdsgatan 2 111 53 Stockholm Please book your seats and time at: mail@cccstockholm.org OBS.
