“Beyond the Senses” features the renowned Chinese Kunqu opera artist Kong Aiping in her ground-breaking re-interpretation of classical Chinese poetry. Set against a serene garden, Kong wanders around and starts to recite and sing about the scenery around her. She eventually realizes that what she sees and hears are but illusory, and slowly comes to achieve enlightenment. On the stage, amidst the voice and light strums of the pipa, all enter into a realm of meditation and contemplation.
Presented by Wuji Ensemble, “Beyond the Senses” will have a limited run this summer in London for 1 performance.
