A co-production of National Kaohsiung Center for the Arts (Weiwuying), Spoleto Festival USA, Lincoln Center Festival and Singapore International Festival of Arts, the one-act “installation opera” Paradise Interrupted is adapted from a section of the Kunqu classic The Peony Pavilion and has gathered some of the most prominent Asian and Asian American artists working nowadays. The Emmy-awarding winner (and ACC grantee) Jennifer Wen Ma's stage design incorporates paper cutouts, Chinese watercolor, light and shadow, and multimedia installations. The result is dark, mysterious garden that leads the depth of the human heart.
