The Invisible


Thursday 30 November 2017 - Friday 1 December 2017

She waits for airplanes to cross the sky. She wants to see the outside world. She folds paper planes. She takes a flight. She leaves home. She arrives in a foreign country. She feels invisible. She asks why.

A storyteller stands alone on the stage, sharing a story about an invisible character.

What happens when East Asian culture lands at Heathrow Airport? How much do you know about the invisible? How little do you know? The Invisible is a one-woman show by Yuyu Wang, drawing on real experiences of living in a foreign country, incorporating story-telling, music and movement. It aims to explore the vulnerability, homesickness and otherness of Asian communities overseas, offering a new perspective on current contemporary discussions around immigration, alienation and home.


★★★★ “Wang has the intensity and charisma to carry this off in spades and her magnetic performance makes it easy for the audience to invest in this story”
