“Shan shui” is the Chinese word for landscape and means mountain water.
With everyone spending more time at home, Shan Shui inventively brings you a sense of freedom and outside space, by immersing you in sights and sounds found in nature. In this performance, artists Edurne Rubio & María Jerez use objects and props found around the home to take you though an imaginary landscape which transcends the limits of lockdown.
Edurne Rubio and María Jerez are currently working on a theatre piece A Nublo which is scheduled to be performed at BE FESTIVAL 2021. A Nublo is their first co-authored work, which combines the different sensitivities and interests of each, and proposes a common world. Shan Shui is an online spin-off of this new work.
Each year, BE FESTIVAL packages up their favourite shows from their international festival and sends them on a tour of the UK. We have been privileged to co-present these shows with Circomedia live for Bristol audiences for the past few years.
But 2020 was different. The global pandemic meant theatres across Europe were closed so BE FESTIVAL pivoted and curated their first online BE at HOME FESTIVAL. This is your opportunity to experience two of the best, most intimate online performances from the festival, which blur the boundaries between isolation and engagement.
Experience the thrill of quality theatre from across Europe from the comfort of your sofa.
