“Silk Road, Connection & Conversation”
Malaysia-China Shadow Puppetry Cultural Workshop launced NOW!
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.
In those days when there was no television, the people enjoyed watching shadow plays and gathered together at night to watch shadow play. With the development of the times, shadow plays have gradually been replaced by TV and the Internet, becoming uninteresting to modern people.
In order to attract the attention of people to shadow puppetry art, Gansu Provincial Department of Culture and Tourism, and China Cultural Centre in Kuala Lumpur has organized the “Silk Road, Connection & Conversation” Malaysia-China Shadow Puppetry Cultural Workshop. This event is supported by the Ministry of Tourism, Arts and Culture as well as in collaboration with the Intangible Cultural Heritage Centre in Huan County, Gansu Province and Akademi Arjunasukma.
