Dream of the Red Chamber

Dream of the Red ChamberHenry Ong's six-hour adaptation of this epic Chinese play is a modern yet traditional treatment of a tale of the human heart brought to life by a diverse cast of 13 helmed by LA Director Kila Kitu in as open air series of free performances over three Saturdays at Edward Vincent Park

Dream of the Red Chamber, a sprawling narrative that interweaves realism and surrealism, explores the decline of the fortunes of the noble Chia clan during the early Ching dynasty through a tale of two cousins.  The play is offered through Why Dream in Inglewood?, a City of Inglewood Growing Artists Performed Projects (IGAPP) Initiative, awarded to Playwright Ong. This initiative exposes Inglewood audiences to the practices of contemporary artists and supports the work and growth of artists.

Dream will be performed by a cast of thirteen actors, most of whom will play multiple roles. Live music composed and performed by Longo Chu and original choreography by Annie Yee complement the theatrical work with costume design by Benita Elliott. Noted actor and director Kila Kitu produces and co-directs the work.

The play will be presented in two parts over two days and also in one full day presentation.

Presenter / Producer: Kila Kitu
