2.Tangshan Shadow Play is also known as "Donkey Skin Shadow". During the performance, artists play the shadow puppet behind the shadow screen and sing in dialect accompanied by musical instruments. This form of art is regarded as the originator of modern animation.
3.Teachers from Hebei Museum introduced the origin of Tangshan Shadow Play, its production, and its form of performance, so that students had a detailed and comprehensive understanding of this particular form of art.
4.Many curious students started to touch and feel the texture of the Shadow Creatures, took at the subtle carvings carefully in their own hands , and marveled at the delicate texture and bright colors as soon as they saw them. Since it was the first time for most of the students to watch the live show of Tangshan Shadow Play, they were filled with curiority and excitement towards this ancient form of art. In the subsequent part of the interaction, students took to the stage and participated in the show themselves, overwhelmed by the artistic subtlety of it that even science cannot capture.
5.With the flickering shadow, a veil, a few lamps, seven or eight people, and a few musical instruments, the classic show of “Three Strikes of the White Skeleton” was well coordinated, and vividly presented.
6.Through this kind of cultural exchanges, the intangible cultural heritage of China will be better inherited and protected by the younger generations.
