  • Introduction

    “1587, A Year of No Significance is truly a Zuni masterpiece, reflecting on Chinese culture and history with the use of Chinese art in its extreme beauty. ” Liu Wai-tong “Actors made verbose lines as smooth and flowing as breathing. I admire this mastery that took the stage.” Lilian Lee

    Staged nine times in Hong Kong, China and Taiwan, 1587, A Year of No Significance received critical acclaim from every sector. In 2018, the traditional and historical contents would be injected with new ideas – the performance would integrate real life actors and multimedia to re-interpret a new version of performance with novel acting skills. It will develop into an aesthetic stage work that has even richer levels and more poetic.

    The play is an adaption of the book of the same title written by Ray Huang, a renowned historian across the straits, in Europe and America. The director, Mathias Woo collaborated with Zhang Jianwei, the playwright of the historical play Towards the Republic, to develop 1587, A Year of No Significance into a stage play script that is to the most truthful of the original.

    Little narratives reflect grand history – Through a year of no particular significance in the Ming dynasty, historical factors that would have affected China in the subsequent century are revealed with the integration of multi-media.
