We are very pleased and excited to announce that Jingju Canada will be producing a show in the Montreal Fringe Festival in June of 2011!
The show, ‘San Cha Kou’ (Which is translated as; ‘Three Crossing Roads’, ‘The Crossroads’ or ‘Divergence’), will be Jingju Canada’s first full length production and will be directed by Shijia Jiang. It is a physically intensive performance involving stylized movement, combat and comedy, culminating in the famous ‘Fight in the Dark’ scene. The show is scheduled to run 60mins.
In accordance with Jingju Canada’s mission to bring a greater understanding and appreciation of Jingju to a Canadian audience, ‘San Cha Kou’ will be performed in traditional costumes and makeup with a translated adaptation of the classic script. This script will be translated into English and adapted with the objective to further enlighten and inform a multicultural -Canadian- audience of the colourful storyline and characters found in ‘San Cha Kou’.
