When Petals Fall in Serenity

Law Wing-fai “Atmospheric Music Theatre”

18 - 20 / 1 /2019 ( Fri to Sun ) 7:45 pm

Asia Society Hong Kong Cente

Set against a serene garden, the main character Ru Yu wanders around and starts to recite and sing about the scenery around her. She eventually realises that what she sees and hears are but illusory and unreal, and slowly attains enlightenment and transcendence of life. On the stage, amidst the light strums of the pipa and voice, all enter into a realm of meditation and contemplation.

Beyond the Senses features the renowned Kunju artist Kong Aiping in her ground-breaking re-interpretation of classical Chinese poetry through ‘Atmospheric Music Theatre’, Law Wing-fai’s recent artistic direction which utilises the contemporary theatre as a means of expression. Revolving around the natural timbres of Chinese musical instruments and coupled with poetry, songs, music, dance and various visual elements, it hopes to cultivate a mood for reflection as well as a taste of Oriental aesthetics.
