Escaping from the TempleOct. 20th - 21st, 2015  Lyceum Theatre


Escaping from the Templeis adapted from a classic play in Chinese opera, which is famous for its intricate singing technique and delicate emotion. Legend says that only a true star can master the role. Adapted into dance theatre for the first time, the work is a combination of ritualistic ambience, various musical elements and body movements. The story shows a young monk and a young nun meet coincidentally when they are escaping from their temple. Breaking all the rules and taboos of their religion, they keep their practice in secular blissfulness.
