Read an introduction to Qiu's work here.

An essential background for Qiu Jiongjiong’s recent A New Old Play, this dazzlingly playful short documentary remixes a Sichuan opera company’s dress rehearsal for its tribute to Qiu Fuxin, the director’s grandfather – who was a legendary opera performer of 'clown' comedic roles, and the real-life subject of A New Old Play. This exuberant celebration of a not-yet-lost past re-activates the memories of aging, but irrepressibly vital, stage artists. A New Old Play screens in the National Museum of Asian Arts Meyer Auditorium on June 5.
