Look no further. The faces of a thousand sentient beings shall be unveiled.
 
Based on the classic novel The Dream of the Red Chamber, In Search of the Grand View Garden is about 14 young travellers fond of classic literature who arrive in an extraordinary garden. Enchanted by the beautiful landscape, they drink and recite poetry, sing and dance and assume the roles of the imaginary characters in The Dream of the Red Chamber.
 
The “Grand View Garden”, however, is located nowhere else but in the midst of urban high-rises. CCDC Artistic Director Willy Tsao transforms Kwai Tsing Theatre into a mesmerizing landscape for audiences to explore - like Granny Liu - finding performances in various locations both indoors and out. Surrounded by sound installations, audiences will be engaged by the ambiguities of roles and apparent conflicts in time and space as found within The Dream of the Red Chamber all while the stories of the travellers' ever shifting lives are revealed.
