The histories of xiqu and porcelain are closely intertwined. Scenes from opera classics like Lady Zhaojun Goes Beyond the Great Wall
and Romance of the Western Chamber
have long found their way onto the surfaces of china plates and household wares. For this restaging of Noah’s Ark
, the artistic team was inspired by the Chinese-style gospel porcelains produced at Tao Fong Shan Christian Centre in Sha Tin and created the sets and costumes of this production. The documentary short reveals the boundless possibilities of these two art forms.
