China Face Mask Changing
The ‘Face Mask Change’ is a unique Chinese art form. Its origin lays in the Sichuan opera. The Mask Change began 300 years ago and as time goes by, the technique is constantly worked upon and improved. This art form is now considered as one of the top folk skills in China and is on top of their list of protected arts.
Performers nowadays will be able to change over 10 masks in less than 20 seconds during their routines, in combination with their operatic movements.
