Programme of Taiwan Culture Festival 2013
Hong Kong Premiere
Co-presented by: Kwang Hwa Information and Culture Centre & HKICC Lee Shau Kee School of Creativity

“Paper Cut Dreamer” brings the idea of paper cutting into theater, where the play explores philosophical questions like yin and yang, emptiness, surrender, as well as questions of life. This play takes a minimalist approach and returns to the relations between material and story. The director, Chia-yin Cheng, places human actors and rod puppets on the same stage, and creates a unique way of narration of paper cut figures and human body movement. It experiments an aesthetic of theater in which less is more. “Paper Cut Dreamer” resembles a magical fable, with the collaboration of incredible talents from  Asia, including Hong Kong stage designer Man-tung Tsang, Malaysian playwright Choon-eiow Koh and Taiwan renowned costume designer Ching-ju LIN . Come and experience the most exciting interpretation of a mythological story!
