Eventual Ashes presents: Hiding Words (for you) by Gein Wong

September 13 – 23, 2012

Theatre Dance Music

Communication is the heart of everything.

“Can you decipher.
Words within fabric.
Songs that sound like secrets.
My sworn sister,
I’m hiding this,
for you...”

Hiding Words (for you), delves into nushu, a secret language created in 400 A.D. when Chinese women were not allowed to read or write. Set in China during its biggest 19th Century rebellion, a modern Canada where national security is at a heightened state, and a hip urban Hong Kong on the eve of the Beijing Olympics. This interdisciplinary play examines the relationship between two women connected through space and time, following their pursuits to influence social change.

Hiding Words (for you) seamlessly blends together theatre, poetry, hip hop, western and Chinese classical music, modern dance, performance art, and the visual arts.

Featuring: Rebecca Applebaum, Stephanie Jung, Traci Kato-Kiriyama, Soomi Kim, Richard Lee, Susan Lock, John Ng.
