Shadow Mask Theater Level 1

This project is designed for 5th to 6th grade students.

Students will explore contemporary Shadow Mask Theater. We will adapt the famous Chinese novel, Journey to the West, to create a show called Monkey King’s Adventure.

This project is multifaceted. Students will learn some Chinese literature and  culture. They will design and make a shadow mask. They will learn how to design and create scenery with two overhead projectors. Students will participate in a performance with masks on a large shadow screen (12 ft W x 10 ft H). The program will contain creative activities and will also develop teamwork and cooperation skills. We will play Monkey King’s Adventure”, “ The Mouse Bride”, “The Ox and The Monkey” and more.
