Paradise Interrupted

Performance / Taiwan
September 8, 2017 - September 10, 2017
Weiwuying (National Kaohsiung Center for the Arts)
No.1, Sanduo 1st Rd., Fengshan Dist., Kaohsiung City 

Reimagining and fusing the biblical story of Eve’s expulsion from the Garden of Eden and the vivid dream of Du Liniang in The Peony Pavilion, Paradise Interrupted opens with a woman alone onstage, dreaming of an erotic encounter with her ideal lover. This dream triggers a psychological journey through a surreal, interactive garden made from dynamic paper sculptures.

This kunqu opera was co-produced by the National Kaohsiung Center for the Arts (Weiwuying), New York Lincoln Center and Spoleto Festival USA. Three workshops that give the audience a chance to interact with the opera's director and performers will be held in the arts center in Kaohsiung Sept. 8-10.
