Profound, Slow, Quirky, Clever, Ambitious

See it if If you like si fi about rebels and a dystopian world. More reading than a plot line.

Thought-provoking, Intelligent, Absorbing

See it if The relationship between German painter Franz Marc and bohemian poet Else Lasker Schüler is at the core of this wildly theatrical play

Don't see it if written and directed by Ran Xia. The language is robust, surprising, and poetic, and the staging is full of inventive flourishes that Read more
