Shanghai Theatre Academy run community theatre workshop

From 24th March to 4th April 2013, Beiyaowan Centre started a 12 day theatre workshop. This activity was entitled “Hope in Beiyaowan”. The Director was a woman from “Bread and Puppet Theater” of the United States and was sponsored by the Shanghai Theatre Academy. Students from that University and Shanghai and Fudan University students were involved in the project as well as the children in the Beiyaowan area.

Over the 12 days of the project there were 300 times of attendance by the University students and 220 times of attendance by the children and parents.

At noon on 4th April there was a show through the streets of Beiyaowan given for the people on the project in which they displayed the masterful props that they had produced over that period.
