Taiwan Season: Heart of Darkness
Summerhall Festival - Cairns Lecture Theatre
Dance Physical Theatre and Circus
Taipei-based Sun Son Theatre fuses instrument, voice, body, drama, ritual and environment with traditional and folk elements, symbolic objects and contemporary theatre to explore the inner self. Its work is characterised by an organic performance energy free from racial and cultural boundaries. Long hair symbolises a woman’s pathway through life. Time shrinks in her shadow. Aspiration, expectation, fear, secrets and ambition lay hidden deep inside. Heart of Darkness attempts to understand women who are slowly forgotten.
