Demon? Bad Clown? Evil King?


Given my limited knowledge of Chinese culture (I once ran into Kobe Bryant at the Nike store in Beijing amidst a mob of young men, which was instructive), I found it hard to understand this performer. He swirled around the stage, stopping to strike these poses. The face mask changed frequently, although I cannot tell you the meanings. The overall effect was hostile. Looked pretty cool, though. You could win a Halloween costume contest dressed like this.

Sounds like a perfect opportunity for a photographer!

Oh yeah, mask changing is a thing in China.... I think they change roles or characters in the story...
