The Longjiang shadow play was quite popular in the 1960. It faded away during the past years. Fewer people know of it, and still fewer are avid fans.

In May 2011, the Longjiang Shadow Play was written into the national list of intangible cultural heritages. And this ancient play, which originated during the Han Dynasty and became popular in the late Qing Dynasty, has an opportunity to be revived.
