I Swallowed a Moon Made of Iron

Music Picnic (Toronto) / Point View Art (Macau)

A requiem for our digital age from Toronto/Macau composer Njo Kong Kie (winner, 2018 Toronto Theatre Critics Award, Best New Musical). This concert experience sets the poetry of Chinese poet and factory worker Xu Lizhi to song. Powerful, haunting and gut-wrenching, these poems give voice to millions of migrant workers worldwide whose existence is often forgotten. An interdisciplinary tribute to the life of Xu Lizhi and countless others whose unseen struggles provide the amenities of our digital lives. In Mandarin with English surtitles.
