How did Kunqu, an elegant form of traditional Chinese theatre proclaimed by UNESCO as one of the masterpieces of the oral and intangible cultural heritage of humanity, take root and grow in the U.S.? Presented in partnership with Kunqu Society, this program will trace some of its historical developments through memories of Ms. Chung-ho Chang Frankel (1913-2015), an amateur devotee of Kunqu, and popularly known as “a female literary talent of China’s Republican Era.” After emigrating to the U.S. in 1949, over more than sixty years Ms. Frankel continued to practice, teach, and promote Kunqu past her hundredth birthday. Her enthusiasm and enjoyment are vividly remembered by family and students, as well as professional artists.
崑曲是中國歷史悠久、表演雅緻的傳統戲曲,經聯合國教科文組織評為人類口述和非物質文化遺產的代表作之一。崑曲是怎麼在美國落地生根、發展傳開來的?海外崑曲社將透過有「民國才女」之稱的崑曲曲家張充和女士 (1913-2015) 的故事,追溯和記錄這個華裔文化藝術的歷史軌跡。充和先生1949年遷居美國之後,在超過一甲子的歲月裡,出於個人對崑曲的愛好,長年研習、教授、和推廣崑曲。節目採訪了充和先生的家人、學生、以及同台合作的專業演員等,皆為珍貴的第一手資料和內容,歡迎您一起來觀賞!節目為中英文雙語播出,播出後有觀眾問答。
