A Life on the Silk Road
  • Edinburgh Fringe

A dynamic multimedia production from the National Theatre of China, recreating the epic journey from east to west along the historic Silk Road. In a ground-breaking collaboration with French theatre makers, digital projection and an electronic soundtrack complement the evocative physical performance of a world-class cast of 16. Following the success of their 2017 Edinburgh Fringe production Luocha Land, this new production by celebrated choreographer Zhao Miao once again combines Chinese mythology with powerful visuals and contemporary physical theatre. 'Passion and precision in physical theatre' (Scotsman). 'Colourfully macabre and slickly executed' (BroadwayBaby.com).
