Chinese Shadow Puppetry Lecture

On September 24, 2009 Annie Katsura Rollins, an MFA candidate in theater, set design, and puppetry at the University of Minnesota, presented a family-friendly lecture-demonstration about Chinese shadow puppetry. In 2008, she studied with the Hua Xian Shadow Puppet Troupe in Hua Xian, China. Ms. Rollins taught Chinese shadow puppetry at the Confucius Institute's Chinese language and culture summer camp.
