As many as 8881 candidates applied for the performance major, with a recruiting ratio of 253: 1, and the most difficult part was the major in broadcasting and hosting arts. 6,746 candidates will compete for only 20 admissions places, which is called "thousands of troops." Cross the wooden bridge. "

It is not uncommon for professional “hosts” such as broadcast hosts and actors to be so attractive to many people that the “behind-the-scenes” profession is equally popular. The Department of Stage Art, which serves lighting, curtains, costumes and makeup, is such a dark horse. There are only 50 enrollment places this year, but the number of applicants has exceeded 5,000. The enrollment ratio of 100: 1 is really "one hundred miles."

"It is foreseeable that the specialty of stage art will continue to ignite." Hu Zuo, secretary of the party branch of the Department of Stage Art of Shanghai Theater Academy, said in an interview with this newspaper. On the one hand, although the specialty of stage art originated in drama, its practical application field has surpassed drama, and it can "fit" with a variety of works of art, and has broad employment prospects. At the same time, the rapid development of cultural and creative industries and cultural undertakings has formed The strong support for drama, film and television also determines the strong demand for talents in this field.

Cross-border competitiveness, application-oriented majors "will not be easily eliminated"

A behind-the-scenes job turned out to be a big hit for art exams. Is it a surprise that it became popular?

Well-known dance designer Huang Kaifu said that stage art is a highly applied specialty, and the talents it trains can not only serve modern stage art, film and television art, but also have a strong adaptability in advertising, cultural and creative, space design and other fields. Sex. "It can be considered that stage art will not be easily eliminated for a long time to come."

Even if you do not choose a stage after graduation, it is very convenient to engage in art-related work. Hu Zuo told reporters that at present, more and more graduates in the field of beauty design are appearing in traditional and emerging fields such as multimedia design, space design, environmental art design, and urban space design. "Using drama thinking and director's thinking to do art design, the results are often better than traditional art majors and graphic design majors. The feedback from employers is very good." Including Cai Guoqiang, the director of the fireworks for the 70th anniversary of National Day, Sha Xiaolan, the chief lighting designer for the opening and closing ceremonies of the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games, and Xu Jiahua, the chief makeup and modeling stylist for the opening ceremony of the Beijing Olympic Games, all came from the stage art profession.

In fact, in the stage of art examination in 2019, the Department of Stage Art had "little burst" once, and the number of applicants has tripled compared with 2018. From the 50: 1 recruitment ratio, we can see that this professional "popular red" "the trend of.

So, what exactly is a little special and mysterious stage art to learn? According to reports, the major in stage arts places great emphasis on students' grasp of space abilities. First-year freshmen start to exercise modeling ability, and use different materials to shape and express various spaces. "It can be regarded as a 'composite' art major, but it has a broader knowledge and greater applicability than pure art majors, and the technical gold content of the discipline is not small." Huang Kaifu said, cultivating the integration of art and technology High-end talents are also one of the important directions for talent training in drama majors. The ability of innovation and creativity, aesthetic ability, and technical means and stage presentation skills, such application-oriented talents have strong competitiveness.

Behind the professionalism from cold to hot, is the rapid development of related industries

The continuous improvement in the production and quality of domestic drama and film and television has directly brought about a huge demand for talents in related art fields. In addition to the strong demand for stage art, the builder of the behind-the-scenes works of literary and artistic works, the relatively unpopular professions such as musical theatre performances and puppet shows have been increasingly heated by the rapid development of related industries in recent years.

This year, the number of candidates applying for a major in drama, music, and performing arts reached a record high, reaching 1,037. The popularity of this major in recent years has driven the rapid development of the musical industry. According to data from the Shanghai Performance Industry Association, in the first half of last year alone, Shanghai's musical theatre performances reached 292 performances, with box office revenue exceeding 60 million yuan, and the musical theatre industry ushered in a "big explosion" in China.

Also popular is the puppet show major. Only 18 people are recruiting in the puppet show. From 2018 to the present, the number of applicants has been "over one thousand". In fact, puppet show has always been one of the important art areas of contemporary drama. The stage show "War Horse", which has been popular all over the world, uses puppet skills from Africa and is a pioneering and cutting-edge representative type. China's puppet art also has a long history and rich variety. Today, these "non-heritage" and traditional arts have ushered in the best opportunity for revitalization and inheritance, and have given a lot of room for development.

However, some scholars have reminded that during the popularity of the "cold" major, it is not excluded that some students hope to enter the performing arts circle through the so-called art examination depression. Huang Changyong, the dean of the Shanghai Theater Academy, believes that there is no such thing as a shortcut to the art test. Opportunities should be reserved for those who really need it, rather than the "excessive measures" implemented because of the fierce competition in popular professional fields such as acting. The pursuit and awe of art is the bottom line that every art candidate must have. For example, Peking opera performances can be described as unpopular majors, but they always attract a group of young people who yearn for traditional art. Li Peihong, dean of the School of Traditional Chinese Opera at Shanghai Theater Academy, said that opera is personalized, not "mass-produced". Love and respect is the key to the entrance to the art test.
