We were busy this summer preparing our newest show, “Chang-er Flies to the Moon.” We expect that this will be the next mainstay of our repertoire.
Chang-Er Flies to the Moon recounts the timeless legend of the Chinese Moon goddess and her husband, the archer/hero Ho Yi. Chinese Theatre Works’ adaptation of this ancient tale of supernatural love caught up in conflict with Heaven and Earth uses overhead projector shadow puppetry, with images and figures modeled on traditional Chinese shadow figures, with a dash of zany humor!
Written and Directed by Kuang-Yu Fong and Stephen Kaplin.
