dc.descriptionC1 - Refereed Journal Article
dc.description.abstract<jats:p>This article is about one of the most depressing fieldwork situations I have ever encountered in China. <jats:italic>Tiaoxi</jats:italic>, basically, is dead. Some of the old artists are still alive, but the plays themselves were performed for the last time in 1987. There is video footage, taken by a professional team from the Ministry of Culture in Beijing, but the quality can only be described as execrable. There are abundant surviving libretti in manuscript, collected by field workers during the 1950s and again during the surveys of the 1980s, but they are almost all held in the Provincial Arts Research Institute in Xi'an, and no one is allowed to see them, not even the ‘old artists’ who donated them in the first place; not even photocopies are held by the county Cultural Bureau or by the artists themselves.</jats:p>
