Journey of Whispering Dreams

About the show

What if I say this is my journey of healing, this is from my cultural hometown… But that’s just a ‘what if’.

The healing from a period of confusion and mental turmoil during adolescence and the way she has since made away from the old hometown carrying pieces of cultural memories are interwoven into one journey. The solo performance is a blending-together of autobiographical fragments, poetic text, physical movement, dance and ancient Chinese cultural references, including an allusion to the classic play Peony Pavilion.

‘All in a swirling silky dream’
