Pi Ying Xi Performance - New Journey to the West
 

Shadow Puppetry (Pi Ying Xi) team of Primary Division staged a performance New
Journey to the West in the School Hall on May 21, 2018. After a year of training,
members have become skilled at manipulating the shadow puppets to walk, talk, turn
and so on. They also learned to hand-make the puppets.  Hiding behind an illuminated
screen, the adventures of Xuanzang, Monkey King, Pigsy and Sandy of getting the
Buddhist scripture were transfigured by lights and shadow. Through learning the
hadow play, students had a deeper understanding of Chinese literary classic and
traditional performing art.
