Rhinoceros in Love at Adelaide Festival Centre


Rhinoceros In Love, a modern Chinese experimental master piece, will be performed by the National Theatre of China at Her Majesty's Theatre. Written by Liao Yime and directed by Meng Jinghui it is an unusual story of love and longing. If you are an admirer of films such as Happy Together (1997) and In the Mood for Love (2000) by Wong Ka Wei, sumptuously visual and yet delicate worlds of off bit characters , this theatre production will probably grab you with its mix of moodiness and creativity.

The story centres on a Rhinoceros keeper who is in love with his neighbour who loves another. And so he kidnaps her. It carries the universal theme of what people will do when they are in love.

This production is part of OzAsia Festival which will later head to the Brisbane Festival and Melbourne Festival. It's in Chinese Madarin with subtitles (and there is some coarse language).
