    Read Sing Eileen Chang

    Read Sing Eileen Chang was premiered in the Hong Kong Cultural Centre in 2020. As Zuni’s first live-streaming experiment, the production jumps out of the theatre into the audiences’ home; this year, it even walks into the screen at the cinema.

    Featuring texts selected from Eileen Chang’s novels and essays, the writings of Eileen Chang become three-dimensional as a team of musicians and performers from different cities engage in a creative experiment on sound, acting, and technology.
