Theatre Movie: Practice of ZEN
Presented by: Theatre Ronin
Produced by: Theatre Ronin
Platform: 2021 Edinburgh Fringe Festival digital, C ARTS
Synopsis: The Story of Swordsman from Mount Shu was written by Li Shoumin. Born in the Republic of China, he wrote about a world of Xuanhuan Wuxia, captivated millions who found themselves in troubled times.
In the 80s, on a roof webbed with fish bone antenna, a kid with his superhero blanket cape was brought to a realm of Wuxia he longed for, by a leaf. He took in all the tangling of impermanence with resentment, lust with karma, in the martial world. With one light slash he was back, but thousands of years have passed.
Practice of ZEN brings the spirit of Wuxia in contemporary theatrical language. Not a fairytale for grownups, Wuxia is a medium to evoke thinking between the personal and the social.
Continuing the creative spirit and form of Hoichi the Earless, Theatre Ronin recreates folklore and contemporary emotional landscape.
A practice of ZEN awaits you.
Pandemic halts shows but not creativity and artistry. Theatre Ronin strives to innovate and capture moments of sincerity. We invite you to be our witness as performers relive the tale.
