The Surge
Editor's Description

The Surge is a contemporary dance theatre piece directed by Shi Yanyan. The work is adapted from a short story titked "Wang Liulang" from Songling's Strange Stories from A Chinese Studio. The story tells how a fisherman and the ghost in the water were not supposed to make acquaintance, but the two lonely souls were connected by the enchanting effects of liquor. Very relatable! When the fisherman finally realizes that the ghost is pulling people down into the water in exchange for chances of reincarnation, he is caught in a dilemma over life and death. He inadvertently becomes the witness of a life-changing ceremony as he watches another man approaching the bank of the river. Saving the man, he would deprive his ghostly friend of the chance to move on to another life.
