Have you ever been curious about the many props in a Chinese opera? 🎼Or wondered what all the colors on the characters’ masks mean? In this week’s MOCACREATE at Home, we’re continuing our explorations of the vibrant world 🌎 of Cantonese opera. This time, we’ll be learning about the props actors use and their distinctive makeup. Then, we’ll be making our own opera masks 🎭 with materials from home! What personality traits will your character have? 🤔
Share your Chinese opera masks in action by tagging #MOCANYC and #MOCACREATEathome on social media, DMing us @mocanyc, or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org!
MOCACREATE is supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, in partnership with the City Council and the New York State Council on the Arts under Governor Kathy Hochuls’s Regional Economic Development Council Initiative.
