Theatricality and Cultural Critique in Chinese Cinema

From: Asian Theatre Journal
Volume 25, Number 1, Spring 2008
pp. 122-137 | 10.1353/atj.2008.0010

Abstract

Abstract:

The various ways in which theatre and film interact generate diverse forms of theatricality in Chinese cinema: jingju films, narrative films containing traditional theatrical performances, and films incorporating modern performance types. The significance of theatre in Chinese cinema will be discussed with two questions in mind: (1) to what extent the aesthetics of traditional Chinese theatre cross over from stage to screen and (2) whether filmic representations of theatre generate a critical discourse vis-à-vis state ideology and cultural policies.
