The General Education Center of National Cheng Kung University (NCKU) held the presentation of the "Traditional Opera Practice and Performance" course, titled "The Art and Emotions of Opera," on December 27, 2023, at Xiuchai Lecture Hall, Kuang-Fu Campus. The course, part of the Ministry of Education's Higher Education Sprout Project, was organized in collaboration with the Institute of Art and the Master’s Program in Drama of the College of Liberal Arts. It explored traditional opera, creative thinking, and the issues surrounding citizen judges. The event featured interdisciplinary presentations on culture, creativity, opera, and civic issues, with participation from the Taiwan Bangzi Opera Company, the Mixed Ability Variety Group, and the Tainan District Court.


Tainan Project Office Executive Director  Zhi-Chang Chen, a distinguished guest at the event, expressed admiration for the students' integration of traditional opera with civic issues. He observed how they utilized performance arts training and physical development to delve into topics such as decriminalizing adultery through the lens of "The Amorous Lotus Pan", gender equality through the stories of "Mulan" and "Guiying Mu", the respect for elders exemplified by Rong Kong, and discussions on long-term care and marine environmental pollution. Through extensive discussions and reflections on modern civic issues and traditional opera narratives, students not only discovered themselves but also showcased their understanding through the performance of judicial topics. This provided them with more opportunities to engage with various societal issues, enhancing their critical thinking and dialectical skills, fostering problem-solving abilities, and opening doors to creative thinking across different fields of study. The event highlighted the diverse outcomes of their creative endeavors.


Assistant Professor at NCKU's Institute of Arts Studies, Wei-Chien Ma, noted that the course incorporated practical exercises by inviting judges from the Tainan District Court to simulate scenarios related to "citizen judges" on campus. Additionally, traditional opera cultural stories were critiqued and analyzed, fostering critical thinking among students. Through the innovative approach of "citizen judge" deliberation and communication, the course aimed to cultivate students' abilities in diverse perspective awareness, critical thinking, dialectics, social issue comprehension and problem-solving, as well as logical deduction and judgment. This method facilitated students in integrating new and old perspectives for issue exploration and proposing solutions directly. Moreover, it taught them to listen to and respect others' viewpoints, thereby enhancing their problem-solving skills.


This course utilized expressions, sounds, and consciousness, employing methods such as exploration, walking, action, and movement to blend traditional art with localization and artistry. Through theoretical learning and hands-on "citizen judge" practical experiences, it aimed to guide creative expression through collective artistic exploration. By making civic participation a life experience for students and cultivating artistic energy in the community, the course aimed to broaden each student's perspective, reshape traditional opera practice and performance, and showcase the uniqueness of creativity.
