Kunqu opera represents a quintessential aspect of traditional Chinese theatrical culture. In the face of dwindling engagement with traditional operatic forms in contemporary society, this project seeks to leverage data visualization techniques for the redesign and propagation of Kunqu's performance modalities and its cultural essence.

Focusing on the iconic repertoire "Beating the White Bone Spirit," this initiative meticulously visualizes various components, including stage movements, vocal techniques, narrative conflicts, and musical scores. This approach aims to facilitate a more intuitive comprehension of this venerable cultural heritage among viewers.

The overarching intention of this project is to foster a deeper appreciation and understanding of Kunqu opera, ensuring its enduring relevance and accessibility in the digital age.
