Sun Son Theatre, returning to Summerhall after its success in Taiwan Season 2017, welcomes you to enter a light-hearted world of live action and hand-crafted animation. Originally created by visual artist/actor Wan-Chun Liu, this disarming show is a 21st century urban fairytale where the line between real-life and fantasy is sweetly blurred and dreams can come true. It introduces us to a single woman – buoyant and colourful, but also bored and lonely – who returns home after work every day to a world of the imagination. Hand-drawn film imagery conjures up home as a safe but possibly confining place of salty tears and sugar water, bathroom karaoke and a mermaid alter ego who isn’t at all as ugly as she might sometimes feel. Come and let your own imagination – and spirit – run free.
Please Note: there are no shows on August 6th, 13th and 20th.
