Description Gao Xingjian, the first Chinese Nobel-prize-winner in literature, wrote The Other Shore in 1986 as a commentary on the shifting values and beliefs in Communist Chinese society. The work, controversial in his homeland, eventually forced him into exile, but is widely recognized as a powerful expression of the struggle in contemporary China and elsewhere. The Other Shore, a featured event in the college-wide Global Insight program, is a vibrant physical-theatre piece that experiments with movement, sound and imagery to explore questions of individuality, community and freedom. Guest artists in Chinese Music and shadow-puppetry will collaborate on the production. Written by Gao Xingjian and directed by Amy Seham.
