Cool Photo Project About Chinese Propaganda

Chinese Cultural Revolutionary Opera Editorial Photos
An example of old Chinese opera editorial

I stumbled across this kickstarter project this morning, sounds like it could be cool. Heres the gist of it:

Photographic recreations of the aesthetic of the People’s Republic of China’s “Revolutionary Opera” plays from the 1960’s, specifically the “Eight Model Plays”. The stage plays were the few permitted operas during the Cultural Revolution and carry a distinct visual style of propaganda in their visuals and themes. Using traditional costuming, dancing and stage design I would like to recreate the look of these operas set to modern day American issues such as:

• Two foreign wars
• Terrorism
• Consumerism
• Obesity
• Celebrity
• BP oil spill and big business
• Our current political divisions
• American cultural isolationism & ignorance
