This daring new music theatre work revolves around two noted female characters from Chinese operas, Du Liniang (THE PEONY PAVILION) and Zhu Yingtai (THE BUTTERFLY LOVERS), and their encounter in an erotic dream driven by the most primitive desire. This dream allows them to transform, to break sexual boundary identities and to liberate them from the form of existence.

(Taiwan), after the highly acclaimed world premiere at Taiwan Traditional Theatre Centre this September.
