Theatre Horizon's presentation at  the Edinburgh Festival Fringe

LU-TING THE MERMAN

A mythical merman tribe in ancient Hong Kong, the Lu-tings is oppressed by another dominant culture. They learn the language of this culture and end up revolting against them. This is a touching story told in a theatre style encompassing dance, masks, live music and poetry, ‘reminding the audience of their own heritage.’ (The VileArts)

Theatre Horizon's creation of The Lu-Tings premiered in the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in August, 2014. It was highly regarded by the local audience and critics alike. The Lu-Tings was chosen to be one of 30 theatre performances to be archived at the National Library of Scotland by the Fringe Performance Archive.

Review  

The Vile Blog | The Lu-tings / Gareth Vile
2014.8.7
// The story is told clearly and with passion, a charming introduction to a style of theatre that is equal parts poetry and dance: the political subtext is present but is never allowed to overwhelm the immediacy of the plot.//
