Presented with the support of the Chinese Consulate in Melbourne as part of the China Cultural Gateway Program, and back by popular demand, this rare collection of beautifully handcrafted shadow puppets from Shaanxi province is re-presented in new light. This exhibition celebrates the recognition of Chinese Shadow Puppetry as an Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO and brings this unique art form to life.
Visitors are invited to create their own shadow puppets at the workstation and experience the magic of this intricate craft.
Program runs between 12 August to 13 September 2013, including dance workshop, story telling, moon cake demonstration and lantern making.
