JAPANESE INDONESIAN VIETNAMESE ... OTHERS Chinese Theatre With a history of 800 years, opera is the main form of Chinese theatre, integrating singing, dialogue, acting and acrobatics into a unique and fascinating art form. Adapted to the needs of depicting different themes, plots and characters, it is a traditional art form with a strong national flavour and is unique in world theatre. Chinese opera has a rich repertoire including thematic operas, comedies, tragedies, tragicomedies and poetic folk operas. There are 368 different operatic forms in the country, of which some are revived old operas, some are post-liberation operas and others come from minority nationality areas. Opera troupes number more than 3,000 as against 1,000 in the early years of Liberation. Professional players and other personnel total 200,000. Although performers of all kinds were belittled in ancient times, various schools of traditional operas flourishes now and draw large audiences in the present-day China. Chinese Classical Literature

Kabuki theatre history
Kabuki is the most famous of the forms of Japanese theatre. Spoken and sung in 'old Japanese', even the Japanese themselves find it difficult to understand. It is a little like a Japanese version of Shakespeare performed at the opera and the performances last a number of hours. The word 'kabuki' is made of three characters in Japanese: 'ka' meaning 'songs', 'bu' meaning 'dance' and 'ki' meaning 'skill'. Kabuki is performed at a special theatre and the displays are usually overwhelming in their use of colour, makeup and stylised movements. The revolving stage and trapdoors mean that impressive entrances and exits occur throughout the performance. bodyOffer(1471) The history In 1603, the original kabuki players were all women who danced onstage and apparently performed other services offstage. As the 17th century progressed, women were no longer permitted to perform because it was thought that they were having a corrupting effect of the spectators. Young attractive boys began to play both male and female roles and caused as much havoc as the women had, so kabuki was actually banned for a time in the mid 1600s. Finally, older men were allowed to perform although they had to shave the tops of their heads so that audience members would not be tempted by them. Ironically, this led to an enormous focus on the importance of skill rather than looks as these men played both male and female, young and old roles.

Lectures: 2 Tutorial: 1 Description:
This course will focus on performance forms, both traditional and modern, which have grown out of the cultures of India, China, Japan, and South East Asia. Students will gain an understanding of the characteristic features of the principal performance forms in each of these cultures, while learning to appreciate how these forms have assimilated a wide range of cultural, religious, and aesthetic influences. Key subsidiary issues such as authenticity, cultural appropriation and fusion, and the future of traditional forms will also be considered, making this course ideal for any student wishing to acquire further insights into Asian cultures. Prerequisites: None.

Nothing like Punch...... There was much interplay between kabuki and bunraku s theatre, but rather theatrefor adults Title Bunraku japanese puppetry
Bunraku - Japanese puppetry
Bunraku is the oldest of all Japanese theatre styles and possibly one of the most misunderstood. To describe it as simply ‘puppetry’ fails to encompass the complexity of the stories and the artistry of the puppeteers. Like many Japanese traditional arts, the puppetry of bunraku can take years to master. In particular, working harmoniously and smoothly in conjunction with two other puppeteers to make the movements and expressions of the puppet as lifelike as possible takes a great deal of patience and practice. While the puppeteers are visible, a truly good performance will make you forget that they are even there. The history of bunraku bodyOffer(27290) Bunraku has been performed in Japan for almost a thousand years and, while certain elements have remained the same, much of what is now considered ‘traditional’ bunraku, was not in place until the 17th century. Early puppets had few moving parts and were operated by a single person who remained hidden as did the musicians. The puppeteer also narrated the story. This gave the performance a much simpler feel while restricting the distractions for the audience. In 1684, as well as changes to the mechanics of the puppets being made, two men contributed to even greater changes within bunraku. One of them was Gidayu Takemoto, a famous narrator of bunraku who added his own emotive style to performances and the other was Monzaemon Chikamatsu, a well known writer of kabuki. Chikamatsu began writing bunraku plays using the Confucian ideals of loyalty over personal feelings which are prevalent in kabuki. He also wrote plays about the merchant class, in particular, about current events or occurrences which affected them. As merchants made up a large part of the audience, his plays were a huge success and are still performed today.

Mai, a dance form featuring circular, static movement, was refined as an art to entertain a small number of guests in an intimate venue.
Odori originated from the dance of Kabuki; it consists of up-and-down, dynamic movement. Odori has been developed as a stage skill.
Buyo is a word created rather recently to signify both Mai and Odori.
The contemporary dance form of Butoh is considered to originate from Tatsumi Hijikata's work Kinjiki, presented in May 1959. The characteristic of Hijikata's Butoh was the artist's intention to create expression particular to Japan, yet paradoxically universal by involving physical energy (violence, the grotesque, obscenity, etc.) which society regards as taboo.

In the Muromachi Era (14th century) Kan'ami and his son Zeami developed Noh; as Shogun (General) Yoshimitsu Ashikaga protected Zeami, until the Meiji Era (19th century) Noh was supported and handed down mainly by the governing classes such as the daimyo, or feudal lords. With the Meiji Restoration in 1868, Noh lost its patronage and high profile, but has survived by allowing students to learn Noh on an amateur basis. At a formal presentation, five works of Noh (serious drama) and four works of Kyogen (comic drama) are performed alternately in a one-day program, but these days a program usually consists of one to three works of Noh, Kyogen or both; performances of Noh alone or only Kyogen are frequently held.
