The Interrupted Dream is a narrative of Peony Pavilion, a Kunqu play originated in the Ming Dynasty, under extreme oppression. Geng Zi is the Chinese name of the year of 2020, recurrents every 60 years, often a year of turbulence in Chinese history. Borrowing the concepts of this play repeatedly, Danny Yung created The Interrupted Geng Zi Dream this year to explore theatre through theatre and verify experiment through experiment, as in his usual practice. Dreaming has no cultural or regional boundary and it’s comparable to theatre making which can travel through the East and the West, ancient time and the present.  Dreams are like virtual theatre. The stage presentation is the reflection of a dream. Are consciousness and subconsciousness involved in the practices of dreaming and theatre making considered a way of escaping the virtuality or seeking the truth? With The Interrupted Geng Zi Dream, Danny Yung uses experimental theatre to expose, review, criticize his own consciousness and subconsciousness in the Year of Geng Zi.
