Chinese Bamboo Billboard  竹. 戲棚

 

The history of bamboo scaffolding can be traced back to the Han Dynasty, when people used bamboo to assist in building houses and theatres.

During festivals, temporary bamboo theatres would be erected to stage Chinese opera performances to thank the gods and attract villagers. Up to the 1970s, bamboo was still widely used in Hong Kong by theatres and restaurants before neon light was introduced.

Today, the scene of large crowds gathering at the bamboo theatre to enjoy a Chinese opera has become rare. There are only about 60 bamboo theatre makers left in Hong Kong.

Bamboo Theatre Building Technique has been listed as one of the items on the Representative List of Intangible Cultural Heritage of Hong Kong to preserve this precious craft. Bamboo theatres and bamboo billboards can be compared metaphorically to Hong Kong, constantly transforming to face the challenges of new requirements.

Bamboo Billboard, “I cause no light pollution!”

用竹做戲棚,最遠可以追溯至中國漢代:時人以竹輔助建屋,也用之以架設戲劇表演場地。

傳統中國戲棚會在節慶臨時搭建,用以表演粤劇來酬神及吸引村民。直到70年代霓虹燈出現之前,它在香港仍然受劇院和餐館廣泛使用。

時至今日,大時大節到戲棚看粤劇熱鬧盛況不再,現時香港只有約60個戲棚師傅。戲棚搭建技藝更被列為非物質文化遺產代表作名錄項目之一,以保留此彌足珍貴的技藝。戲棚及竹棚就如香港——一直與時並進。
