Two stories collided coincidently,
In farce and poignancy,
Transit between humour and melancholy,
When you are desirous of an ideal,
You defy the negligence,
Onwards with the endless search…
Due to the mismanagement of the theatre personnel, two theatre companies were forced to rehearse at the same place. One rehearses the poignant play about an interracial relationship that was separated by the borders during the modern history, while another story was adapted from one of the greatest poet Tao Yuanming’s comedy– A depressed and anxious fisherman trespassed the Peach Blossom Land by accident, isolated from the troubled world yet insisted to go home. As the two groups struggle for control of the stage, resulting in chaos and numerous comic squabbles, their contrasting worlds begin to come together, creating surprising new layers of meaning that are tragically moving and comically erroneous.
In 1986, Performance Workshop has successfully set an important milestone for Taiwan contemporary theatre scene by challenging the boundaries of tragedy and comedy with the Secret Love of Peach Blossom Land. This year, with the renewed focus on theatre classics, Pentas Project Theatre Production will be adapting this world-renowned masterwork into multi-lingual context with an array of cross-cultural casts. Secret Love will be taking on the Malay adaptation, while Peach Blossom Land remained its Chinese interpretation. A display of diversity can be seen through the three languages (English, Mandarin and Malay) performed, as well as the cross-border collaboration from theatre, TV and film industries, in portrayal of the omission and perseverance of our very own Malaysia society.
