Learn Cantonese opera from 3D software with sensor technology

Innovation may be the key to preserving and promoting traditional art form to wider audience, especially among young people.
Developed by Education University, the method incorporates 3D kinetic sensing technology into Cantonese opera training. It is an example of how innovation can enhance and preserve traditional art forms under threat of losing their relevance amid a lack of instructors.
“In the old days, students stayed with their masters all the time, so the teachers could point out the mistakes immediately,” said Leung Bo-wah, who is director of the system and also head of the university’s department of cultural and creative arts. “Now students only have one class per week.”
