The hot back stage

This Chinese Opera troupe spends half of the year traveling from town to town putting on a traditional performance that's been handed down for centuries. They perform in temporary theater made of bamboo frames and sheet metal walls, at night they retire to the crawl spaces under the stage. The performance back stage at times was much more fascinating. Everything was done in the traditional way, which made the electric light and fan seems just a tad out of time and place.
