“This play is the result of collaborative work by several Breton language groups: Teatr Piba, Radio Kerne, Dizale and Kalanna. We believe that high quality Breton language drama productions are necessary. To this end, we work hand-in-hand and share our expertise.”

Anna Lincoln, Kalanna

Often the first image of a play comes to me at night. Characters emerge from the shadows slowly as if being torn away, lit by a hurricane lamp or a torch. Once they have come into the space of my night, they won’t leave. They follow their story from the darkness to the bright page…”

Dominique Paquet

The story takes place in China. One evening, Zao Ming tells his friend Shen You that he won’t stay another hour in his house. Why not? Because China is changing too quickly: money is king, his parents have become slaves and are not looking after him any more. Shen You joins Zao Ming, and they go through trials and ordeals all the way to the edge of the world. Their travelling companions are the paintbrushes and words they use to describe the world as it now is… and as it could be.
