天问 TIAN WEN: Heavenly Questions for Modern Times
By Visual Expressions
Directed by Hua Hua Zhang

Inspired by a classic Chinese poem, Tian Wen is an experimental puppetry performance featuring living sculpture, stylized movement, and live music.

The individual segments - or dreams - explore the emotional and behavioral differences between East and West that Hua Hua Zhang has observed since journeying to America in 1996. Zhang explores themes of loneliness, competition, compassion and self-reflection, as well as the balance between love of self and love of other.
