This talk introduces the development of children’s theatre in China from the Song dynasty to the 21st century. What was children’s theatre like in ancient China if we take the concept in its broadest sense? How has it been developing along different stages and what have been the new trends and challenges of Chinese children’s theatre in the last ten years? This talk will explore the five stages of development of children’s theatre in China, illustrating the most representative repertory with pictures and videos where necessary.
