Performance Notes The masks in this Cao village performance are less angry and frightening than those of the Jin village performance also archived in GloPAD (See records Wu-san, Wu Gulao Qian and Kaitian Pidi ); one may infer that the Cao performance is based on a later, more comforting version of the creation myth. Also see records of the other relevant versions in GloPAD.
