Danny Yung Experimental XiquStartup of Wusheng

Shi Kefa the Drowning . Gao Chong the Outcast General 
Way of Wusheng . The Same Ending

 

By experimenting with two wusheng repertoire excerpts, Drowning and The Outcast General, the programme explores how wusheng moves express anger, anxiety, doubt, and the unavoidable metaphysical theme – death. In one of the excerpts, Shi Kefa throws himself into the river in outrage, and in the other, Gao Chong sacrifices himself. Their journeys may not be the same, but we could savour the mix of emotions in the common destination of their stories.

 

Danny Yung Experimental XiquStartup of Wusheng strives to innovate xiqu passed down for generations, to resonate with a contemporary and international audience. Through a conversation across generations and cultures between two young xiqu wusheng and two contemporary performers from different cities in Asia, it explores ever-evolving traditions from various viewpoints and social structures.
