又是一年春好处
——记圣城华人联盟2014大型春季烧烤活动


春,作为四季之首,是人们最钟爱的季节。春天意味着簇新的生命,蓬勃的希望,以及大自然又一个轮回的开始。任何人走在春天里都不能不被她盎扬的生机所感染。听,屋檐下美丽的铜铃正被春风拨动得叮咚作响,鸟儿在枝桠间欢快地鸣啭啁啾,朋友们在远处大声地唤着:“春天来了,和我们一起赏春吧!”于是我们终于按捺不住,推开门,大踏步走进春天的怀抱里。春阳下,朋友们个个笑靥如花,亲切的问候如阳光般温暖明媚 -- 我们忽然明白令我们欣喜的不只是这春天里的新绿与繁花,更是这从不曾远离的挚友情谊。圣安东尼奥华人联盟以及德州圣安东尼奥孔子学院历年来举办的春季烧烤活动就仿佛是这样一位忠诚的老朋友,在每一年春天来临的时候如约而至,带来问候,带来欢乐 -- 今年的烧烤活动于4月5日再一次在美丽的雷蒙德罗素公园(Raymond Russell Park )如期举办 ,圣城华人及各界友好数百余人欢聚一堂,共同度过了一个美好的春日。

与往年一样,主办方在食物搭配与烹制上花了不少心思,烤肉、烤肠、卤鸡翅、卤鸡腿、蛋炒饭、色拉、西瓜、披萨...均被一扫而光,而本次活动的一大特色羊肉串更是令大家赞不绝口。饭后的文娱活动除了老少咸宜的广播体操、广场舞、卡拉OK、拔河等保留节目,还增加了跳绳等其他大家喜闻乐见的活动。另外,新增设的抽奖环节将本次活动推向了一个高潮。圣城BBQ活动自然少不了孩子们的参与,孔子学院今年再一次不负众望,为孩子们准备了丰富多彩的游戏活动,除了大型充气城堡,FACEPAINTING 等,最令孩子们喜出望外的恐怕要算是骑小马和亲近小动物两个环节了。热爱小动物是孩子们的天性 -- 只见他们快乐地围着那些小羊、小兔、小鸡、小马...叽叽喳喳地热烈讨论着,许多小朋友伸出小手温柔地抚摸甚至亲吻那些小动物,留下一个个温馨有爱的瞬间。

绿草青青,春色盈盈,漫山遍野的矢车菊在和煦的春风里轻轻地舞动着,仿佛一幅美丽的巨幅织锦,将春天里的人们温柔地裹挟进去...

能够感知春天的人,心里一定满怀着爱和希望。华联主席连大祥教授示本次活动的成功举办离不开团结友爱的志愿者团队,在幕后默默奉献的他们是华联的中坚力量。在未来的一年里,圣城华人联盟会继续携手各界华人同胞,举办更多大家喜闻乐见的文娱活动,让更多的人融入这个充满爱和希望的集体。

She studied ancient Chinese dances and choreography from Professor Beibei Zhang at Beijing Dance Academy for many years,. Later she studied Bian Lian ( Face-Change) in Sichuan opera. She has performed in Hong Kong and Singapore. She has combined dancing and masks changing in an innovative way. She had won numerous awards for specialties in Tai chi, Tai chi fan, sword, Face change, and Latin dance. People in real life, cartoon characters, and even abstract objects can become to the subjects of her mask changing. In addition, she has incorporated the performance of Tai Chi sword to royal dances. She performed and worked in Shanghai. Shenzheng, Hangzhou, Chongqing of China.

She has performed Bian Lian in New York, Houston, Dallas, and the Rio Grande Valley. She was honored to perform on stage in the same event with some famous Chinese stars, such as 江昆,田震,任答华,满文军,庞龙等 in Houston, etc. cities. Mary has performed four times this year in the Community center of McAllen. Her performance was highly valued and appreciated by the audience and organizers of the city of McAllen.

Sichuan Bian Lian (Face Change, Mask Change)

Face changing is a stunt of performance in opera arts and is a romantic technique to reveal the innermost feelings of characters in the play. According to the legend, the ancients painted different patterns on their faces to scare away fierce beasts for survival, thus the "face changing art". Sichuan Opera uses "face changing technique" on the stage and transforms it into a special art with stunning skills.

"Face changing technique" was firstly used for characters like gods and spirits as early as in the Ming Dynasty. "Changing into blue face" was already recorded in Erlang of Guankou Killed the Scaly Dragon, a compound opera of Ming Dynasty. At that time, the actor entered into the backstage to change the face. Later on, it evolved to that the actor changed his face on the stage. It became a stunt. Not a few local operas have it, but it is most famous in Sichuan Opera. Face changing art could be divided to "major" and "minor". In the major "face changing", the entire face was changed by three, five or even nine types. In the minor "face changing", only part of the face was changed.

The technique of "face changing" is roughly divided into three types: "smearing", "blowing" and "pulling". There is another way of "Qi-manipulation". When Peng Sihong, a deceased famous actor in Sichuan Opera, played the part of Zhuge Liang in Empty Fort Strategy, he could manipulate "Qi" to change his face from red to white and from white to blue when the servant reported that Sima Yi had withdrawn his army, signaling the fear of Zhuge Liang after releasing the burden.
