Design Statement

Dwelling in the Fuchun Mountains is a masterpiece which takes us though a serene, mysterious and lonely spiritual journey on an Autumn day. Its pure but wild painting style quietly struck and inspired the stage designer of the play.
Using any imaginable object between heaven and earth, the stage designer introduced the aesthetic of depth, profoundness and expansiveness from Classical Chinese paintings to the space design on the stage, picking one of the scenes from the painting as the main stage set- up almost in a carefree and lighthearted manner. Right behind the 6.3m long painting desk which is placed in the centre of the stage, sit layers of lumpy hills and mountains, immediately bringing the painting to life on stage. It's as if the audience are watching a live

Chinese painting, which one can appreciate from multiple perspectives. The reality and imagination are becoming one.
