Set in a fantastical world, this classical Chinese play often draws comparisons to Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream. Retelling its timeless story in a cross-cultural, multimedia environment, this adaptation explores intertwined themes of life and love through a poetic lens of Buddhist philosophy.

A Dream Under the Southern Bough delves deep into the lush inner worlds of all beings and challenges human perceptions of reality.
