What To Expect

Indulge your inner child and experience the traditional Chinese art of shadow play! Shadow dramas were one of the types of puppet theater that were popular in China before the modern era. Even in rough military camps or in primitive villages, the people could entertain themselves by moving figures against a screen or sheet illuminated by a lamp. Located in the historical Hutong area at the heart of Beijing, the quirky Shichahai Shadow Art Performance Hotel offers shadow art performances three nights a week for audiences all ages. If you’re feeling extra creative, choose from two shadow art painting classes and learn from master puppeteers who’ve honed their craft for years. The Shichahai hotel is just a 5-minute walk from the scenic Houhai area, renowned for its restaurants, bars, and cafés. Beihai North Subway Station (line 6) and Ping'anli Subway Station (line 4) are also within walking distance.
