|Title:||Imperial Chinese Theater||Contributor(s):||Wu, Cuncun (author)||Publication Date:||2006||DOI:||10.1336/0313329680||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/1946||Abstract:||For most of Chinese history, the roles of performers and prostitutes were closely associated, and the two were lumped together in a single legal category (and in popular morality) right up to the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911). Courtesans and local prostitutes were never entirely separated in the public imagination, and anyone selling sex was required to display at least a little talent in song and some skill with at least one instrument. These features, as well as distinctions made between status categories and categories of slaves and servants, can make it difficult to translate terminology from Chinese history accurately.||Publication Type:||Entry In Reference Work||Source of Publication:||Encyclopedia of Prostitution and Sex Work, v.1, p. 220-222||Publisher:||Greenwood Press||Place of Publication:||Westport, USA||ISBN:||0313329699||Field of Research (FOR):||200204 Cultural Theory||HERDC Category Description:||B1 Chapter in a Scholarly Book||Other Links:||http://nla.gov.au/anbd.bib-an40149038
