The Classical Chinese Heritage: A Cross-Cultural Journey @ U MN

December 4, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Free

 

Dear colleagues, students, and community partners,I am writing to invite you to attend the performance event “The Classical Chinese Heritage: A Cross-Cultural Journey,” which is the capstone project for my class this semester CHN5214 “Introduction to Chinese Classical Language and Culture.” The play was conceptualized and written by students in the class, under my guidance, and the content of the show reflects their language learning and intercultural explorations throughout the semester. From robot calligraphy to multilingual poetry recitations, the play is comprised of various scenes that provide a modern perspective on classical forms of art and literature. It will have something for everyone.

The show will be performed primarily in Mandarin Chinese, with English captions provided on large screen. This performance project is funded by the Teaching Innovation Grant from the Center for Education Innovation and the Chinese Flagship grant.

We are happy to have invited the student band “Clay,” the members of which are native speakers of Chinese studying at the U, as our guest performers to open the show. The band has prepared a set of songs that integrate traditional and modern musical motifs, including covers of Chinese folk classics and their original songs.

All are welcome to attend this free event at Northrop’s Best Buy Theater on the evening of Wednesday, December 4th. The Best Buy Theater is located on the fourth level of Northrop.

Door opens at 6:15pm, and the band “Clay” plays starting at 6:30pm. “The Classical Chinese Heritage: A Cross-Cultural Journey” starts at 7:20pm. There will be 10-minute intermissions before and in the middle of the show.

We also welcome you to the social time from 9:00-9:30 in the gallery space outside the theater, if you’d like to learn more about the AMES department or the Chinese Flagship program, or simply chat with the performers.

If you plan to attend the event, we’d appreciate that you spend a minute or two and fill out this brief survey. The survey result will help us apply for grant to support events like this in the future.

For any questions, please email me at ningma@umn.edu . Thank you and we hope to see you on Wednesday!

Sincerely,
Ning Ma

尊敬的各位同事,学生,和社区伙伴们,

谨以此信邀请您参加“无问西东:中国古典文化的跨时空之旅”的演出活动。此次活动是我在本学期讲授的CHN5214“中国古典语言与文化”课程的结业项目。所有节目由班级学生构思撰写,由我负责指导。该演出的内容反映了同学们整个学期的语言学习和跨文化探索的成果。从机器人书法到多重语言的诗歌朗诵,该剧的各种场景以现代视角重新表现古典艺术与文学。观看这场演出,我们相信您一定会不虚此行。

表演将主要以中文进行,并在大屏幕上提供英文字幕。该表演项目由明大教育创新中心的教学创新基金和中文领航基金资助。

同时,我们很高兴邀请到学生乐队“ Clay”作为我们的嘉宾表演者。乐队的成员都是在明大学习的中文母语者。Clay乐队准备了一系列融合传统和现代音乐主题的歌曲,包括中国经典民歌翻唱以及自己的原创歌曲。

欢迎大家来参加这场免费活动。演出于124日星期三晚上在Northrop的Best Buy剧院进行。Best Buy剧院位于Northrop的第四层。

剧场在下午6:15向公众开放,乐队“ Clay” 演出从下午6:30开始。 “中国古典遗产:跨文化之旅”演出于晚上7:20开始。演出之前及中段将有10分钟的休息时间。

我们也欢迎您在剧院外的画廊中参加我们9:00-9:30的社交活动。那时您可以了解有关明大亚洲和中东研究系(AMES) 或中文领航的更多信息,或者与表演者们聊聊天。

若您准备参加此次活动,希望您能够花一两分钟时间填写这份简单的调查。调查结果会帮助我们申请支持以后类似活动的资金。
