Summary
In Shanghai during the early portion of the twentieth century, a hybrid theatrical form emerged that was based on Western spoken theatre, classical Chinese theatre, and a Japanese hybrid form of kabuki and Western-style spoken theatre called "shinpa" (new school drama). Known as "wenmingxi" (civilized drama), this form has, until recently, largely been ignored by scholars in China and the West as it does not fit into the current binary "traditional/modern" model in non-Western theatre and performance studies. This book places "wenmingxi" in the context of its hybridized literary and performance elements, giving it a definitive place in modern Chinese theatre
