Abstract

In the context of cross-cultural perspectives, drama is considered as an imported commodity for Chinese theater. Tian Han's early works marked a crucial point in the development of Chinese drama. This paper uses textual analysis to examine Tian Han's early drama ‘Death of a Noted Actor,’ exploring its significant role in laying the foundation for the emergence and development of Chinese contemporary drama from a cross-cultural viewpoint. The analysis focuses on cultural integration, market integration, dramatic aesthetics, and the utility research of how Tian Han's early dramas transcended the temporal constraints and shaped the theatrical concepts that promote the development of contemporary Chinese drama
