First Teochew opera, puppet show museum and performance space in Malaysia!

一名封了箱的潮劇演繹家,一堆封塵的絢麗戲服與道具,一箱箱寫著歲月的潮州木偶,一份對潮人文化的執著和熱忱。 。 。

在馬來西亞著名文化遺產保護及中華文化的熱衷推手- 林玉裳女士的牽針引線下,她和慕韓別墅合作開創了潮州戲曲文化藝術空間--《潮藝館》,延續了她與〈金玉樓春木偶劇團〉的傳奇故事。她出身潮劇世家,外婆楊清音女士曾是50年代南洋潮劇名伶,母親杜愛花女士更是“老榮秀春班”出色的女樂師。自幼受戲曲的熏陶下,她不僅承接父母的衣缽,成為木偶劇團的掌櫃人,更是創辦了〈金玉樓春潮劇團〉。她,就是大馬潮州戲曲達人-- 吳慧玲。

《潮藝館》將帶您走進大馬潮州戲曲的歷史空間,讓您一覽珍藏的手抄劇本和鐵枝木偶;帶領您遊覽戲棚後台那神秘的角落,讓您體驗戲班忙碌的運作;讓您為這些木偶人注入新生命, 延續潮藝文化。
