Book of Ghosts

Copyright: Zuni Icosahedron Productions, 2016

In 2009, inspired by Yuan Dynasty dramatist Zhong Sicheng’s Lu Gui Bu (Book of Ghosts), IRC-Fellow Danny Yung invited four Asian traditional performing arts masters to experiment dance and theater under the theme of “Ghosts” to reconnect the past with present, while showcasing the beauty of traditions in contemporary theater.
There was also an additional performance “A Dialogue Between the Traditional and the Contemporary” performed by four contemporary artists, as a responding performance to the interactions with the traditional performing arts masters and their Book of Ghosts performances.
