Ventriloquism & China Allegro “Love Fills the World”
Ventriloquism is a kind of folk performing art, which is a combination of acrobatics and quyi. In the ancient time, it was called “onomatopoeia”. Ventriloquism is one of the precious heritages of Chinese culture and art. It has a long history, which can be traced back to the Warring States period. At that time, a man named Meng Changjun escaped from Hangu Pass by imitating the sound of a cockcrow. This is the earliest record of ventriloquism, but it was only used for military purposes at that time. The real beginning of folk performance was in the period of Emperor Huizong of Song Dynasty. This kind of art is one of the one hundred opera performances in Qing Dynasty. The performer hides behind the cloth curtain or the screen, and then uses the mouth, teeth, tongue, lip, throat and other body parts to make a voice to imitate various sounds, such as baby crying, bird singing, etc. When the performer is performing on the stage, the combination of actions and language introduction can enhance the sense of reality.
Now the ventriloquism has developed into the art of the mouth, which is the development of oral art. During the Tang, Song, Yuan, Ming and Qing Dynasties, there were artists such as Wen Baniang, Fang Zhailang, Guo Maoer, Xiao Jintong, Yin Shilin (Kai Kouxiao), and Huamei Zhang. They and their ancestors made great efforts to spread this ancient folk art to this day.
In the 1930s, Yin Shilin, a ventriloquist, transformed ventriloquism into audio-visual art, breaking the conventional form of performance and adding new elements of performance, thus forming the present form of performing art on stage.
"Love Fills the World" is a literary work created by Ji Yong, the inheritor of the intangible cultural heritage ventriloquism project, to express the theme on fighting against the epidemic. In the whole nation’s anti epidemic campaign, many touching people and things deserve our praise. As one of the intangible cultural heritage projects in Tongzhou, ventriloquism is used in a unique way to cheer for Wuhan and China.

In this critical period of national anti-virus campaign, countless medical staff have rushed to the front line without fear. They can’t have a reunion with their families, but choose to carry on with a heavy load…
And in the rear of the battlefield against the epidemic, there are many people who spread warmth in their own way. Wang Shucai, the inheritor of Beijing Qin Shu, pays tribute to the medical staff who are fighting on the front line with his work “Though the Wind and Rain”.
Both the front line and the rear support are contributing to the fight against the epidemic. We help each other; we support each other. With our all-out effort, we will win the anti-epidemic war.
