Chinese theatre queries

Dear CAFAM members,

Karen Morency asks the following: for a magic trick in a play, the Freeport High drama department needs a black, silky scarf with a dragon on it, about 2 to 3 feet square, opaque. Does anyone have something like that to lend?

Second, because two Chinese kids in the play are not moving on stage like Chinese people are supposed to move, walk, and gesture, Karen asks if anyone has insights on how (and I would add, if) Chinese move their bodies differently from Caucasians. Count me as unobservant, but I’ve never noticed that contemporary Chinese carry themselves differently from “us”. Am I wrong?
