China & Italy
Traditional Chinese culture meets digital technology from Italy in this international collaboration that proves there are no barriers to global understanding.
Step into a kaleidoscope of colour, sounds and imagery set against the soundtrack of traditional Chinese instruments in Panda’s Home.
The audience will join two dancers alongside a zitar player on this unique, and immersive adventure through the rich cultural landscape of China. On their travels they’ll encounter bamboo forests and ancient traditions as they learn about the Chinese concept of Wu Xing (“Five Elements”) - wood, fire, earth, metal and water – and the harmonious cycle of nature.
Italy’s Compagnie TPO creates interactive theatrical spaces using sensors and digital technology. That technology combined with TONG Productions’ beautiful storytelling results in a performance that goes beyond language and cultural barriers.
Panda’s Home perfectly fills the gap between the young audience, the contemporary world and Chinese traditions. China Daily
