Title: Chinese Take Away (DVD of the stageplay)
Author: Yen, Anna
Price: $130.00

Chinese Take Away: The Stage Play is a one woman show based on the stories of performer/writer Anna Yen's grandmother, mother and herself. Using a unique blend of storytelling, circus skills, clowning, movement and magic, Chinese Take Away: The Stage Play travels along the river which flows from one generation to another.

Yen embodies her grandmother's stories of survival in 1930's China and Hong Kong, to her mother's dislocation and grief in 60's surban Sydney, to her own grief, confusion and peace-making with her family's histories.

Anna Yen gives a magnetic performance which employs innovative movement, magic and drama to negotiate a complex and multi-dimensional narrative. Anna Yen is a performer, director and circus/movement teacher who has worked and trained with professional theatre and circus companies in Australia, Europe and Asia.
