The Jingju Tradition and Communist Ideology
This chapter examines how a child dan star in the Republic was transformed through the Communist Theatre Reform into “a people's artist”. It further examines how a young actress managed to be original when facing the further refinement of the dan performance art after the Four Great Dan, and how she negotiated between a strong theatrical tradition and a formidable ideology. It notes that in 2007, Li Yuru was one of the four recipients of the Great Achievement in Performing Arts awarded by the All-China Association of Literature and Arts, honouring her contribution to jingju stage work and her recent research on acting in the genre.
