PKU - Arts of Chinese Traditional Performance
18 July – 29 July 2022
Hosted by Peking University
There are many forms of Chinese traditional performance. The styles vary significantly because of China’s various cultural background and dialects. In this course, a selection of Chinese performing art forms, such as Peking opera and other Chinese traditional operas, Quyi, Chinese folk songs, Chinese traditional music, and Chinese dance are introduced. They represent the philosophy and aesthetics of the Chinese people. These Chinese art forms are also compared with western styles. Their cultural background and technical background (e.g., linguistic and acoustical aspects) are discussed.
