Chinese American Arts Council (CAAC) works with Symphony Space's Global Arts Program, in conducting series of Workshop, Cultural Field Trip and After School Program.

CAAC will conduct workshops and demonstrations on Chinese Opera and Martial Arts. Artists from CAAC were trained in China and who were stars of the Beijing and Shaoxing Opera Troupes. Recipients of numerous awards for their work in China, these artists specialize in warrior roles and are skilled in many styles of theatrical martial arts. Their performances and workshops introduce students and teachers to works from the Beijing, Shaoxing, Kun and Cantonese Opera repertories.

Teaching artists perform and discuss the five elements of traditional Chinese opera—singing, talking, acting, fighting, and tumbling--with students, providing a deeper understanding of the discipline. An exploration of these elements elicits interactive discussion, learning the five elements in the Mandarin language, and practice with stage fighting skills, movement, and mime.

The workshops and demonstrations will be held throughout the year.
