Standing in a deserted zone in the far north-west were four individuals seemingly the foursome of Journey to the West: a retired judge, and three mothers who were told of the exile of their long-time-prisoner children. Barren, there is nothing around but wind and sand. Tracing the path of the drummer, they search for the momentous meaningfulness of their solitary lives.

So Low is the solo of man against time.
A ray of light, a flow of water, a pole too tall to climb.
Shoved and dislocated, the man is squashed to bear the weight of the hands of the clock on his shoulders.
In the barrenness of a bare stage, in the face of the flowing time, man dances alone, accompanied by his musicality, his courage, and imagination.
Chasing his own movements, he fools himself into the search for his refuge on the time-space slide, only to find himself forgotten by his own shadow.
So Low is the encounter of man and time. Non-narrative yet full of stories. Non-emotional yet full of emotions. The story of the unspeakable is told with the body's ancient power of story-telling. The lived body, the vessel of his existence. Man embodies the passage of time in the rhythm of his movements, orienting his existence. He dances the dance of doubt when he wonders, ‘does it really exist, that existence under siege.’

At where drama and opera contemporarize
At where the immersive voice travels through darkness
Through your skin, to the clandestine
Double-reading is what we are. Are we trying to conceal the real me which we find shameful to present? Do we believe violence makes an average me larger than it seems? Chamber orchestra, theater and dance come together in Fish in the Hand, where singing, speaking, music and movements confront the the darkest spot of existence. When the banality weighs too heavily on you, who do you blame? Is it He, or he, or they?
You are what you fear.

Four individuals, living off the shadow of a distant past, and an observer always watching them, they would each seeking alternative routes to contemplate a relationship once trapped by separation forced upon by unwanting circumstances. They would be playing through silence, no words, yet trying to redeem the possibility of writing to one another. Two live musicians will be examining the heart of actions as unveiled by the players, challenging them the root of behavior and the heart of communication therein.
