Flushing to celebrate lunar new year with puppets

February 17, 2017 by  

Residents in the Flushing area are looking forward to celebrating the Year of the Rooster with the Second Annual Lunar New Year Shadow Puppet Slam. The event features cutting-edge performances and tells stories from a range of cultures and sources.

Organized by Kuang-yu Fong and Stephen Kaplin of Chinese Theatre Works, the event is an open format performance that anyone can sign up to participate in. Despite the fact that it is a puppet show, the work is meant for adult audiences. The stories being told will range from traditional fables to avant-garde storytelling, all revolving around the year of the Rooster. Last year topics covered varied from Vincent van Gogh, to the Day of the Dead, to Chinese mythology.

In addition to shadow puppets, the performance will also include animation, video, and film. Extra support and marketing services for the show are being provided by Chinese-American Arts Council, FTH’s Chinese Cultural Committee, the Chinese Radio Network, as well as the National Endowment for the Arts.

The Second Annual Lunar New Year Shadow Puppet Slam will be held this evening, starting at 7:00 pm at the Flushing Town Hall, located at 137-35 Northern Blvd. Admission to the show costs $13 for general admission or $10 for members. Anyone looking for more information should visit the website.
