During the 2014 China Study Tour we came across a street performance on the ground floor of the Oriental Pearl Tower. Here it is captured on video.
Teachers may like to use the video in their teaching and encourage students to comment below in English or Mandarin. They could express their opinions about what they see and hear or answer the following:
What is going on in the performance? What is the relationship between the characters? Why is the woman's head covered up? What does the writing on the carriage mean? Why doesn't the man get back into the carriage? What are the characters saying? Explain the meaning of the song. What did you learn about Chinese culture from the video?
