WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
"Thank you for your interest to learn Mandarin. It is a good investment of your time." Meet the Yao and Lu families from Shanghai, determined to reinvent themselves in a new country. The only language they speak is Mandarin, but that will not stand in the way of a productive exchange with their audience. In this highly original production, we learn basic comprehension of the Mandarin language, just enough to decipher their unfolding story. "C'est du Chinois" is a French expression, meaning "it's all Greek to me" (literally, "it's Chinese"), indicating that something is impossible to understand. The equivalent of this idiom in Mandarin is ??????? (literally, "sound like Mars language"). Netherlands based Hungarian director Edit Kaldor is recognized internationally as a unique voice in the contemporary theatre landscape for her work that mixes documentary and fictional elements.
