Practice of Zen

#FindYour Escape, Story, Thrill

On a roof webbed with fish-bone antenna, a child with a superhero blanket cape was brought to the realm of Wuxia by a leaf. He took in all the tangling of impermanence with resentment, lust with karma, in the martial world. Now he is back, but thousands of years have passed. Experience the spirit of Wuxia: not a fairytale for grownups, but a medium to evoke thinking between the personal and the social.

Inspired by writer Li Shoumin’s The Story of Swordsman from Mount Shu, Theatre Ronin recreates folklore and contemporary emotional landscape.
