About

FAMILY PERFORMANCE

The Shadow Show
Based in the city of Xian--the "cradle of Chinese culture," start of the Silk Road, and origin of shadow puppetry--Shaanxi Folk Art Theater is China's only professional province-based shadow puppet performance group. Since 1953, the company has used ancient shadow puppetry techniques to bring classic Chinese tales to life. Set to lively music, its vast repertoire has earned the group numerous awards and worldwide acclaim. The company makes its U.S. debut with an hour-long shadow puppet performance for young audiences and their families. The production features a collection of signature vignettes based on Chinese folklore, including The Crane and the Turtle, The Bear and the Flowers, The Red Coxcomb, and more.
