A highly visual, physically explosive, celebration of the power of our imagination. The Classic of Mountains and Seas provides inspiration for this original production, set in modern day Shanghai. The world has lost its way, the balance is off. The seas are raising. The Earth is cracking. Beneath the busy Shanghai shopping malls the old gods are waking up. This piece has a couple dialogues in Mandarin, but it's mostly physical theater. The performance is by Shanghai Dramatic Arts Centre (SDAC), Shanghai's only national theatre company.
