House of Tales


fantasy and reality


︎



 
Winner – Hollywood Fringe 2018 Scholarshi. An ensemble of young artists from UCLA, USC and CalArts revive the old tales in a Chinese fantasy short stories collection 《聊齋誌異》 with their modern bodies. Just like the author of the book in 1730, this tribe of artists is trapped in a chain of exams which leaves no space for free expression. Thus, creating art becomes a form of rebellion. They construct the house of tales, inviting audiences to come into the magical space between fantasy and reality, homeland and strange land.
