Shanxi Tombs

by N.F. Karlins

The Shanxi Province of China lies to the West of Beijing. It is famous as the home of Yang Family Style Tai Chi Chuan, the most popular form of tai chi (which happens to be the style of tai chi that I practice). But the new exhibition at the China Institute Gallery on East 65th Street in Manhattan reveals another source of fame for Shanxi -- its importance as a crucible for the development of Chinese theater and opera.
