Sichuan Book Review

Sichuan commentary, also known as vernacular speech and commentary, is one of the traditional operas in Sichuan Province. It is popular in all parts of Sichuan and Yunnan and Guizhou. The performers tell stories in Sichuan dialect with one table, one folding fan and one waking wood. Shooting a reminder wood before the speech can remind the audience and set off the atmosphere. Folding fans are used as analogous objects.

On May 23, 2011, Sichuan appraisal was approved by the State Council to be included in the third batch of national intangible cultural heritage list.

Historical Origin

Sichuan commentary originated from the Tang Dynasty's "talk" and Ming Dynasty's "comment" and flourished in the Qing Dynasty. After Xianfeng, Sichuan's book-reviewing flourished for a time. Zhong Xiaofan and Dai Quan were famous artists of book-reviewing.

According to "Chengdu Tongjian" records: the earliest Sichuan Book Review was to set up a shed in the city, and put a lantern in the form of "Book Review" on the stage. The storyteller raised the folding fan and stepped back, telling the story of the confrontation between generals and generals, the confrontation between the two armies, the shouting and fighting, and the short fight and arrest, giving people the feeling of a bone-and-bone explosion.

Sichuan has a long history of book reviewing, with a large number of talented people, and is known for its local language characteristics. Because of the difference of the way of writing and the way of expression, there are "clear shed" and "thunder shed". The Qingpeng mainly talks about smoke powder, legends and other amorous stories, emphasizing on literary discourse, paying attention to elegant conversation and moving feelings. "Qingpeng" is a basic skill for literati to engage in storytelling, with no formula and emphasis on literary grace, stressing "voice, talent, debate and broad knowledge", emphasizing "cadence, fluency of speech", "inversion, quick thinking", "painting voice and color, speeches and swords", "wide-ranging, trustworthy and handy".

Lei Peng mainly talks about history and Golden Golden Horse bibliography, focusing on the martial arts, pay attention to imitative description. The golden drum cannon and the whistling of horses and tigers are expressed by the artist's mouth, so that the audience can hear their voices. Leipeng artists also have martial arts books specializing in such things as Park's knife, rod and stick. In addition, there is a school that combines "Qing" and "Lei" in one furnace, which has both civil and military skills. It has a wide range of books and compiles some bibliographies of modern and modern life. After the founding of the People's Republic of China, Sichuan Book Review also developed a form of rhyme book review, narrating stories in rhyme, reciting intonation in performance, catchy. The short bibliographies reflecting modern life, such as "Cold Gun War", "Battle in Heaven" and "Heroes on Mount Mira", etc.

In the 1950s, Sichuan calligraphy artists created a short and succinct "rhyme review book" to tell stories in rhyme. In the 1960s, critics and professional writers adapted a number of revolutionary novels, such as "Red Rock", "Defending Yan'an", "Fire King Kong", "Lin Haixueyuan" and "Plain Gun Sound", into commentary stories and successfully quoted them. Li Boqing, a representative figure of modern Sichuan's book reviews and a master of folk music and art, has created a new form of storytelling on the basis of traditional book reviews, namely "Sanda book reviews" quotation. The famous actors of Sichuan Book Review include Wang Bingcheng, Zhong Xiaofan, Fu Pingchuan, Tang Yulong and so on. Xu Xun, a famous commentator, won the audience's praise for his excellent performance art of "strong hands, eyes, body and steps".

Sanda Review

Since the Tang and Song Dynasties, book reviews have gradually flourished and become one of the most important ways of entertainment and leisure for Chinese people after tea and dinner. In the 1980s, book reviews made another brilliant achievement. "Everywhere there are wells, listen to Dantianfang." At that time, book reviews were just like today's popular songs. However, in the 1990s, with the increasing abundance of popular entertainment, fewer and fewer people listened to book reviews, and the art of book reviews began to decline.

However, in Sichuan, the pace of commentary leaving the people seems to be slowing down. The reason is that in the late 1990s, the reform of commentary took place in Chengdu. The originality of Li Boqing's Sanda commentary spread all over Chengdu streets and alleys. The emergence of Li Boqing made the commentary of Sichuan revitalized, making the commentary of Sichuan "go up against the current" in the declining tide of commentary. For a time, the phenomenon of "Li Boqing" became the media. Topics studied by experts.

Compared with traditional reviews, the greatest contribution of Li Boqing's Sanda reviews lies in the innovation of the content of the reviews, which is closer to the times. Many passages are directly derived from real life. This innovation, which is close to reality, life and the people, has also made new development of Sichuan's reviews.

Speaking of Sichuan Book Review, maybe everyone will have a tall, thin body, prominent cheekbones, small orbital triangle eyes, a small beard, a bright forehead man, he is Li Boqing, a person who pushes Sichuan Book Review to the end of the street through innovation. Many Chengdu people say that only Li Boqing can represent the "vulgar" culture of contemporary Chengdu. Chengdu people like this thin, tall man who is in high spirits when he talks. Since 1994, when Li Boqing began to talk about Sanda Reviews, people still like to hear him say Sanda Reviews for more than ten years.

Li Boqing inaugurated the era of "Sanda Criticism"

Li Boqing's Sanda is "keeping pace with the times" and the WTO is a hot spot. He Sanda WTO and Sanda SARS during SARS. In the Spring Festival of 2005, Li Boqing also launched the "Twelve Zodiacs of Sanda" on Sichuan TV. In the program, he no longer played alone, but also the Sichuan version of the "Twelve Woman Music Square" - the folk music group "Jincheng Silk Tube and Shuyue for Women", which played the tailor-made "Twelve Zodiac Songs" for the program, and the beautiful women came on stage to dance with Li Boqing. People who often listen to Li Boqing's storytelling and commenting find that the forms of Li Boqing's storytelling are becoming more and more diverse.

Li Boqing loves to receive his apprentices. Several of his apprentices are hosts of prime-time TV stations in Sichuan, such as Liao Jian, Dingdang and Min Tianhao. Liao Jian is an apprentice who used Li Boqing's Sanda storytelling to live and learn. He founded the "trump rap" form on the basis of Sanda storytelling. Liao Jian, dressed in hip-hop on the stage, has a mouth, and the popular rhythm of RAP is: "Don't make noise with your baby, don't make noise with your baby, and I'll blow your baby up with a hard fight on the table." Liao Jian inherited and developed Li Boqing's classic "Sufen" and "Ha Su Dun", and composed them into songs: "That day you eat cold powder on Chunxi Road, I chew hoof flowers beside you... We two beat haha'er and take you around the South River. At one time, "Sufen" became the most popular folk song in Sichuan.

Liao Jian also had a brother named Lu Pin, who was the creator of "Dialect Animation" popular in Chengdu in 2004. In February 2004, Lu Pin planned the Sichuan dialect version of Cat and Mouse: Tom Kitty's name is "fake sophisticated", and Jerry Mouse's name is "windmill". "Fake sophisticated" and "windmill" have become a pair of tit-for-tat friends in the dialect version. Cat and Mouse sold 200,000 sets in Sichuan as soon as it went on sale. It also directly set off a domestic trend: Northeast dialect version, Henan dialect version, Lanzhou dialect version...

Content Innovation

Unfortunately, such a good day did not last long. Li Boqing chose to leave Chengdu for Chongqing when his Sanda Review was in full swing. Sanda reviews show a downturn. Some people attribute the reasons to Li Boqing's departure and lack of heirlooms. However, this is not the key to the problem. Even though Li Boqing has returned to Chengdu, he has also trained several proud students, but now Sanda reviews are not the same as before, and it seems that Sichuan reviews can not escape the fate of traditional reviews. Today, in addition to Li Boqing's continuing adherence to Sanda, another master, Luo Shizhong, has been sticking to the traditional local commentary.

Content innovation once revitalized Sichuan's book reviews, but content innovation alone could not make Sichuan's book reviews achieve sustainable development. To give vitality to the evaluation, content innovation is only on the one hand, on the other hand, it is still in the use of modern communication methods and marketing means. Relevant experts said that in order to form a healthy industrial chain for the development of cultural industry, the most important thing is the modern marketing concept and talents. The prerequisite for the development of traditional culture is to support the excellent content as the first step, but the content alone can not maintain the sustainable development of cultural industry, as seen from the National situation.
