Nocturnal Wanderer (Chamber)


Presented by The Arts House and Lumenis Theatre Company

In conjunction with Singapore Writers Festival


Directed by Lee Chee Keng


A staged reading of Nobel Prize winning author  Gao Xingjian’s Nocturnal Wanderer (Yeyoushen), the play is a fascinating tragicomedy of brilliant dark humour and sublime surrealism about dreaming, love and the meaning of life. Through his nocturnal wanderings in his dreams, the central character, Sleepwalker, meets some very unusual people and strange things start to happen. Because anything can happen, in dreams.
