The real life story of Chinese actress, singer and dancer Jing Lu in a theatrical form.
The performance will take us on a journey from her childhood in China to her current life in Prague. This intimate story, full of tragedy, adversity and striving for success is confronted with the global questions of our world and the ambivalent relationship of western society to China, which ranges from admiration of eastern culture to fear of Chinese economic hegemony.
The performance is based on the contrast of the personal testimony of a young Chinese woman with the global questions of today's world and the West's ambivalent relationship with China. Michal Nejtek's music was created on the basis of a live sound plan, which the performer herself creates right in front of the audience. The production features refined projection work, a minimalist stage sets and an extraordinary performance by Jing Lu. It was successfully staged at the APAP in New York.
In Czech and Chinese with English subtitles.
