Identity, modernity and power in the performing arts among the Chinese diasporas
The chapter analyzes the nature of the Chinese diasporas and the role of the performing arts in their modernizing culture and in establishing their identity. The chapter includes peoples regarded as minority nationalities inside China. The main example is the Koreans who, numbering some 2 million in China itself, have made a distinct contribution to China's performing arts. The chapter also discusses the role of tourism, which gives powerful incentives to Chinese performers to revive and/or maintain their traditions.
