The Ballad of Mulan

Theatre and Physical Theatre • Performance
United Kingdom • Australian Premiere
Woman, warrior, legend. For ten years Mulan, disguised as a man, fought for the Chinese Empire, but the fighting is coming to an end. Only one last battle and she will be going home, but how can she return to her old life? How can she become the woman she once was, and does she even want to? Michelle Yim gives life to the real person behind the Chinese myth, tracing her rise from the ranks to become the commander of the Emperor's army, all the while pretending to be something that she wasn't, struggling for her own identity in a violent world of men.

From the team behind 'The Unknown Soldier' and 'The Empress and Me'.
