Arrogance and inferiority are mutually exclusive yet they co-exist. The scourge of pride wreaks havoc, causing the sadness and joys of life to fall out of place. Jason and Tanya have fallen in love, yet they cannot move forward together. What makes Jason hang back? What taboo stands in the way of primal instincts?
Jason’s life is at a stalemate. He is stuck between East and West, his hometown and a foreign land, repression and explosion, the earth and the moon. His feet cannot touch the ground, his body afloat with no sense of direction…
No matter in love or friendship, society or politics, he cannot free himself from his own arrogance.
Award winning director Rocelia Fung work together with emerging playwright Wang Haoran (both ACC alumni), create a theatre piece that challenges our very thresholds.
