Poetry under the Southern Bough

Toy Factory Productions Ltd (Singapore)

Introduction 

Toy Factory Productions Ltd presents Poetry under the Southern Bough, a multi-disciplinary performance through the dreamscapes of 20 selected poems from A Dream Under The Southern Bough written by revered Ming Dynasty playwright, Tang Xianzu. 

Helmed by creative director Goh Boon Teck, directed by Timothy Wan, lighting designed by Gabriel Chan, audiovisual engineering by Sandra Tay, and makeup by Zennie Casann - Poetry under the Southern Bough features a stalwart cast of stage actor Li Te, Peking opera actress Zhang Manxi, dancer Ryan Ang, percussionist Eugene Toh, and cellist Huang Ting-Yu.   

Synopsis 

Unravel the elegant poetry depicting the peaks and valleys of disgraced naval officer, Chunyu Fen who falls into a deep slumber; drifting away on a seemingly fantastical dream in the great Sophora Ant Kingdom. 

The voices of the Peking opera singer and the actor flutters in perfect harmony, while a dancer bends and moves into the rhythm fervently struck by the percussionist, and a cellist longingly bows for a dream that never ends. 

Poetry under the Southern Bough is an odyssey of high aspirations, glorious dreams, and fallen reality juxtaposed by a spiritual awakening of artistry performed in the theatre where the arts converge into introspective dreams.
