Hanne Tierney's Strange Tales of Liaozhai to Play HERE
In Strange Tales of Liaozhai, Tierney operates a counterweight system of over 100 strings to bring to life a full stage of objects while telling a variety of stories adapted from 18th century supernatural Chinese folk tales compiled by scholar Pu Songling. The production features accompaniment by Wang, who performs original compositions on toy pianos, the double bass, and self-constructed instruments.
The manipulation is performed by Tierney, with Shawn Lane and Jamey McGilray. Lighting design is by Trevor Brown, with sound by Phil Soltanoff.
