Sichuan Opera, Chuan Ju, Change Face, Face Changing, Changing Faces

Making use of the unique techniques of changing facial masks in Chuanju (Sichuan opera), this opera represents the tragic social turmoil in the early years of the Republic ruled by KMT. The vivid picture about the floating life of a folk wandering actor of Chuanju nicknamed Floating on Water and a girl called Gouwa (Baby Dog in Chinese) reveals the miserable fate and unremitting struggles of the artists who live at the lowest social level in that time.

A senior Sichuan Opera artist with a consummate skill in "changing faces" travels in his small boat along the Yangtze River, bringing the art to the people along the two riverbanks. But the old man is frustrated with his life mission to entertain audiences since he has no heir to continue his tradition. In the hope of finding a proper heir, Shui shang piao buys Gouwa from a human trader and adopts him as his grandson. With Gouwa traveling alongside him, the artist teaches his "grandson" the skills of the trade; but soon Shui shang piao discovers that his "grandson" is, in fact, a girl. However, he keeps the girl as a "helper."
