Changing Faces, Sichuan opera is one of the performing arts, special skills, the audience was very interested, after reading, are all surprised, it is to reveal the inner thoughts and feelings of characters in the play as a romantic way. The invisible, non-abstract sense of what became visible, the concrete sense of something. Stone Self said: "The Changing Faces of the approach generally divided into three types, they are 'face towel', 'blowing the face', 'pull face'," There is also a kind of "luck" fade.
"Face towel" is the fancy paint coating in a specific location on the face, wiped his face and hands when the time could be turned into another face. If you want all the changes, the paint applied to the forehead or eyebrows, if only the lower half of the face changes, the paint can be painted in the face or nose. If only one local variable, then only the coated paint to change the location. Such as "White Snake" in her husband, "put Pei" in Pei Yu, "Feiyun sword" in Chen Lun old devil and so with "face towel."
Blown face, only for powder cosmetics, such as powder, graphite, silver and so on. Some are placed in the ground stage a small box, built-in powder, actor bowed to the ground when the time to do a dance move, take the opportunity to face close to the case of a blow, powder flutter in the face, and immediately became the face of another color. Important to note that: when blowing eyes closed, mouth closed and breath. "Capture of the child are" in the child are, "Governance Zhongshan" in the music figures such as Changing Faces of the sheep child, he used "blow the face." "Capture of the child are" blowing in the face, glass powder is placed inside.
"Pulling faces" a change of face is way more complex. It is prior to painting on a piece of Facebook's silk, the cut is good, both for each Department of a silk mask, and then one by one attached to his face. Thread is tied clothes easily without striking a certain place (such as the belt and the like), with the performance needs, under the cover of the dance movements, and then rip them off one by one. First, the adhesive should not be too sticky mask, so as not to tear down at that time, or all of the mask is a rip off. Second, action to be neat, to be clever feint, to cover the eyes of the audience. Such as "White Snake" in the bowl of children (Grand Rao bowl), can be green, red, white, black and other seven, eight different face. Another example is the "old is flat" in the thief, "Wang Niang Beach" and Nie, also use the pull face.
Sichuan opera face changing luck, the late legendary actor Peng Sihong, in the play "Empty City" in Zhuge Liang, when the child fairly soldiers retreated after the report of Sima Yi, he was able to use qigong Ershi from red to white face, and then from white to blue, is intended to performance of relief after Zhuge Liang scared.
Shi Bao eyes hint of smoke made between children in the eyebrows. Such as "Ask the disease emperor to abdicate" in the Yang Guang Shi leopard eyes, to indicate its brutal vicious.
In short, the face changing in Sichuan Opera is very definitely, and Tian Han in the early 40's saw "Love" said: "The Sichuan opera has the expertise on the face changing like I do not know why." Liu Qian said: "'Changing Faces' issue , is the Sichuan Opera in specific skills, it suddenly changes, see who promote change, 'Changing Faces' is a symbol of the feelings of many of Facebook already has its typical characteristics significantly, indicating people's Faithfulness right from wrong, while the 'face changing' more Help the personality and emotional stress (strain) of the development process, which is the advantage of Sichuan opera. plus the actor to the audience inattention to change his face like, is an amazing technology.
