DREAM OF THE RED CHAMBER: A PERFORMANCE FOR A SLEEPING AUDIENCE

Dream of the Red Chamber: a performance for a sleeping audience invites you to take a deeply ambient journey through Cao Xueqin’s 18th century Chinese novel Dream of the Red Chamber — an epic love story between a stone and a flower, framed by a dizzying series of metaphysical dreams.
