The Comparative Study of Modern Female Performers in China and Japan
In modern China and Japan, female performance banned by the Qing government and the Edo Shogunate era began to revived. The Chinese and Japanese traditional drama performances began to enter a new stage. The emergence of the Japanese actress can be said to be the result of the "drama reform movement", while China's"drama reform movement"was influenced by Japan. However, because of different national conditions the effects of promoting the further development of female performance were different. In modern China, female performance took place in the traditional drama, and then gradually developed into the field of film, music and drama, while the Japanese actress in the new drama appeared and developed, but female performance has never taken place in Kabuki and other traditional drama of Japan.
