    中外共享皮影戏 Shadow Puppet Show


    The CWA and CWB community got together to celebrate our Chinese traditional folk culture last Friday, January 22 in the theatre.

    We invited a very famous Chinese performer, Mr. Zhu Guo Qiang, to our school. Before the show, he kindly provided a master class on how to perform with shadow puppets for students in preparation for their ownperformance.

    At the beginning of the show, CWA grade 1-2 students presented an amazing shadow puppet show as their summative assessment of their Unit of Inquiry ‘How We Express Ourselves.’ This was a collaboration among homeroom teachers, Chinese and art teachers. The students spent a few weeks making theirown paper puppets with the help of Ms. Jaffray, our art teacher, who is committed to incorporate Chinese culture into art class.

    Then Mr. Zhu and his assistant provided us a great and professional shadow puppet show, which was enjoyed by everyone in the theatre. All the audiences applauded spontaneously in the end.

    It was a great way to let students and foreign friends learn more about Chinese traditional folk culture. Let’s look forward to our next gathering!

     


    上周星期五,我们玮思玮希共同在我们剧院举办了一次亲密接触中国民间传统文化的皮影秀活动。

    我们很荣幸邀请到了湖南皮影戏传承人-朱国强朱老师参与此次活动。朱老师在活动开始之前亲自指导了我们低年级学生,教他们如何做一场精彩皮影表演。

    下午1点35分就早早开始了。首先是玮希1,2年级学生单独表演了一场皮影戏。他们这段时间学习的IB主题是“怎样表达自己”,所以这次表演也就作为了他们主题学习的综合评估展。这也是班主任老师、中文老师以及美术老师的一次合作。并且值得一提的是,这次皮影秀的皮影道具是学生们和我们的美术老师Jaffray一起花了好几个星期制作而成的。Jaffray一直都致力于把这种中国传统文化融入到她的艺术课堂中,而这恰恰也是IB课程所倡导的多文化性课堂。

    最后朱老师和他的徒弟一起为我们全体师生及中外家长表演了一场专业的皮影戏,整个过程都伴随着家长和学生们对这场传统民俗秀的阵阵惊叹。最后以现场观众的掌声结束了这次表演。

    这是一次很好的机会让中外学生和家长朋友了解中国传统民俗文化艺术魅力。让我们期待下次的文化之旅吧!
