In Search of New China
Studio Theatre, Hong Kong Cultural Centre
23-24.8 (Fri -Sat) 8pm
Presented & Produced by Zuni Icosahedron
In 1978, China reformed and opened up. In the same year, Danny Yung also returned to Hong Kong from New York, kicking start experimental Journey to the East. Starting from reading China through the Italian lenses of Marco Polo and Antonioni, Yung started to experiment the visual and audio structure of the Chinese language, the symbols of Chinese propaganda, the One Table Two Chairs installation common in traditional Chinese theatre, the content structure of Chinese Beijing and Kun Opera, the debates among international Chinese cities. This is a historical retrospective: Yung has invited his creative partners spanning his forty-year-career, from Jim Shum to Susie Au, Ellen Pau to John Wong, and Benny Woo to Steve Hui... in search of the new China of the past and of the future.
