  "When I went (19) in 1999, it was full of seats." Recalling the performance in Taiwan that year, Li Shujian, representative of the National People's Congress, vice chairman of the Chinese Dramatists Association, and dean of Henan Yu Theater, told a reporter from China News Service. " When I went back the year before last, the theater (audience) had 40% left."

  With a long history of thousands of years, Chinese culture is extensive and profound.

Promoting excellent traditional culture, one is to inherit and innovate, and the other is to maintain the integrity and consolidate the foundation, so as to avoid "lost" and "misinformation."

Promoting traditional culture is like "falling in love"

  The draft of the "14th Five-Year Plan" and the 2035 long-term goal outline that were submitted for review during the two sessions was proposed to promote the creative transformation and innovative development of Chinese excellent traditional culture.

This point coincides with Li Shujian's practice of promoting Henan opera over the years.

  As a very representative local drama in China, Henan Opera has been very popular in recent years.

In addition to the content of the repertoire close to life, Li Shujian also attributed it to the change in performance methods.

Classical stylized performances, realistic drama performances, and romantic film and television drama performances have all been absorbed into the Henan Opera stage today.

  Another transformation is the traditional cultural "+" Internet.

In March last year, Li Shujian opened an account on a short video platform and started a live broadcast, popularizing his knowledge of Henan opera, and invited famous figures into the live broadcast room.

According to media reports, the top viewers of the first live broadcast exceeded 130,000, and the cumulative viewers exceeded 1.56 million.

  Because of this, Li Shujian lamented, “Dramaists must embrace the Internet” and traditional culture needs to cultivate young audiences on the Internet.

"Let's be like'being in love' on the Internet". After netizens have some understanding and love of opera, they are then encouraged to "rush to the show" and enter the theater to experience the charm of excellent traditional art.

Traditional culture "rice circle"?

You may have!

  The term "fan circle" has attracted much attention recently. This kind of organized fan group with a common pursuit of goals is not limited to the current popular culture.

Taking cross talk as an example, the star fans sought after has changed from a fashionable "idol" to a "xiongtai" in a paper fan gown. "Deyun girl" has become a representative of "rice circle culture" in the field of traditional art.

  "People also have a time of'like the old and dislike the new.'" Li Shujian said, especially in today's diverse art forms and fast-paced life, for young people who are accustomed to fashion, traditional art makes people feel more fresh.

  On the other hand, the unhealthy trends of the "rice circle culture" should also be rectified.

Weng Lifen, a representative of the National People's Congress and principal of Dachen Experimental School in Jiaojiang District, Taizhou City, Zhejiang Province, pointed out that star-chasing is a normal need in the growth of young people. Strict opposition is not scientific, and the key lies in positive guidance.

  Li Shujian also believes that the repertoires performed by many Chinese opera stars have strong ideological and educational significance, and that young people should be trained to chase stars in the field of traditional art.

From this perspective, the two are inseparable from the pursuit of traditional art.

"Miscommunication" is undesirable, you must be honest if you want to innovate

  While preventing loss, traditional art needs to be wary of "misinformation."

If people with ulterior motives use traditional culture in the name of MLM to make profits, it will be harmless to the art itself, practitioners, and fans and audiences.

  In an interview with reporters, Yang Zhenhe, a member of the National Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference and the successor of Yang's Tai Chi, said frankly that some people want to use their exercises to become famous and promote this "traditional culture" in a commercial way.

"Modern people must look back and see how the ancients practiced martial arts."

  Li Shujian believes that the "root" of the "fire up" of traditional art lies in tradition, which is the basis for innovation and development.

Many years ago, he put forward the concept of "new performances of old dramas and adaptations of famous dramas". The choreography of "Su Wu Shepherd" is one of the masterpieces, introducing Xinjiang belly dancers and "The Great Wind Song" sung by pop singers, and the expression is more novel .

  "At first, some people didn't recognize it, saying that you are a bit nondescript, not Henan Opera." Li Shujian said, "But my singing is completely authentic Henan Opera."

  "Leverage the rules of the ancients and open up one's own life." Li Shujian pointed out that we must inherit and innovate the ancient formulas. Only in this way, more people will watch opera in the future.
