Shanghai Theatre At Brown

confucius' disciples As part of Brown University’s ‘Year of China’ season, the Department of Theatre Arts and Performance Studies will host performances of Confucius’ Disciples on Monday and Tuesday.

The Shanghai Theatre Academy presents Confucius’ Disciples a series of short plays about China’s greatest educator and his three fictional teen-aged disciples set during Confucius’ historic travels trying to promote his philosophy and statecraft. While the plays are essentially allegories dealing with issues relevant to modern audiences, the characters are based on traditional Chinese opera roles rendered in stylized movement patterns similar to those of commedia dell’arte.

Free and open to the public, 8pm to 10pm, Monday and Tuesday, October 17 and 18, Leeds Theatre, 77 Waterman Street
