Abstract

This translation consists of excerpts from a book on Jiao Juyin, who was a distinguished director of Chinese spoken drama. The selections translated here highlight Jiao's two principal theories: the Theory of Mental Images and "On Nationalizing Spoken Drama." The first represents his adaptation of the Stanislavsky system; the second outlines his ideas for integrating Western realistic drama, which gave birth to Chinese spoken drama, with the techniques and aesthetic principles of traditional Chinese opera. Su Min, lead author of the book On Jiao Juyin's System of Directing, is a well-known Chinese drama scholar and critic. Shiao-ling Yu is associate professor of Chinese language and literature in the Department of Foreign Languages and Literatures at Oregon State University. Her publications on Chinese drama and contemporary Chinese fiction and poetry have appeared in various scholarly journals and collections. Her anthology, Chinese Drama After the Cultural Revolution (1996), was the winner of a National Endowment for the Arts translation fellowship.
