Bio:

Chinese Stage Actors must be very diverse in what they can do: Dancing, Singing, Reciting Poetry, and Stage Combat are all common. Also it should be noted that women didn’t usually perform these jobs, they may be dancers or acrobats, but stage actors were exclusively men and the more androgynous the better. They are considered higher status than regular peasants, though they still are peasants.
