About this event

We would like to invite you to an imaginative journey on the mystery of life, death and existence. The piece creates a parable set in a land of idyllic beauty where the people live in a serene pastoral life. A sudden misfortune in the community, forces the other members into a contemplation of their mortality. Different characters are going through recurring cycles of life and trying to explore its true meaning, which may be a challenging yet beautiful journey.

The first ever physical theatre piece combining Chinese and Australian performers under a Chinese director, with distinctive improvised and composed music featuring Chinese and Western elements. The dynamics of the cross-cultural elements, converging toward an unexpected encounter make for a truly innovative and unique work.

Presented by:
