Abstract:

Chinese temple theatre was the dominant venue and form for theatrical entertainment in premodern Huizhou. Huizhou in its geographical and sociohistorical settings and the layout, structure, and decoration of Huizhou ancestral-temple theatre as represented by Yuqing Tang or the Hall of Superabundant Blessings are discussed and analyzed in association with Chinese theatrical and architectural conventions and folk beliefs, particularly feng shui.
