About the Show Less...

Mythology, ballet, traditional Chinese opera and contemporary narrative are interwoven to tell an extraordinary story of love, sex and death in modern-day China. Read More >

With the help of an ex-pat American private eye, Julian Lucas trawls the city of Shanghai in search of his missing daughter Alex, exploring everything from the seedy vice industry to the sublime Yue Opera. As he follows his daughter’s trail through the darker side of local life, he finds the two extremes begin to blur as life imitates art.

Dis-Orientations is the second stand-alone play in a trilogy of plays about gender, sexuality and performance in mythic and contemporary Asia.
