What is Face/Mask Changing Performance or Bian Lian?
Mask changing can confound and confuse, shock and surprise, but most of all, magic is shrouded in a fog of mystery that astounds the mind. Most jaded and world-weary souls would tiredly proclaim that there is no magic left to bewilder anyone anymore in this world, but they may have spoken too soon without witnessing the magic of the ancient Chinese art of mask changing performance.
Few would realize what the a mask changing act is, but those who have would be made speechless by it. The performance is essentially a stage act put out by a highly talented opera performer, a “magician”, if you will. At the centerpiece of this mask changing act, is the performer who dons bright opera costumes, complete with an elaborate headdress, long sweeping sleeves, beautifully painted hand fan, and dramatic masks. The masks may depict specific characters from famous operas but for those who aren’t well versed in Chinese history and folklore, the performance is captivating all the same.
