“The worst suffering and misfortune in my life comes from the fact that I am a woman.”

 

Some say that Xiao Hong was just an extremely lonely woman on a constant quest for a family she never had but yearned for, even at the price of laying down her pride.  But from a more macro view, vis-à-vis the cultural history of China, she was an orphan of her time.

 

She suffered various kinds of personal strife, loves and losses, and rose to a calling that took her on sojourns throughout China’s lands during the 1930’s, and finally arriving in Hong Kong, where she fell fatally ill amidst the cannons and guns of the Japanese, meeting her helpless end.  In this production, we will trace the life of this talented woman writer of modern China, explore what supported her till the end and how she died a helpless death but remained immortal, through a solo dance.
