Taiwan Season: The Whisper of the Waves

No more showings

Shinehouse Theatre returns to Summerhall with a beautiful balancing act of social issues and theatrical poetry. Text and movement dovetail in a deft, fluidly stylised production which poses a key question: if disaster were to strike, what would you do and who could you turn to? A lonely taxi driver shares a close bond with a sensitive potted plant. A loving same-sex couple are conflicted about surrogate parenting. Spirit mediums speak for these characters, voicing their innermost thoughts and feelings. The result is an affecting, ingenious consideration of both nature and human nature.
