Treasure Trove of Shadows
by Jiangzhou Feng

As the industrial world collides with agricultural life, China’s traditional folk arts are in decline. Fusing music, singing, physical theatre, shadow puppets, and multimedia, Treasure Trove of Shadows follows the story of a puppet master in WWII, as he discovers his shadow puppet box’s destiny. A Pandora’s box, buried and found three times, before a rusted key unlocks it to reveal three generations of puppeteers, and all their bitterness, love, hatred and delight. Featuring puppets in the style of the Ming and Qing dynasties (1368-1912): an unmissable chance to glimpse the oldest shadow puppets in the world.
