Fight The Landlord Hits The Arts Centre
In a cross-continental collaboration, Ireland’s Pan Pan Theatre and Beijing Square Moon Culture Company are getting prepared to bring Sun Yue’s contemporary Chinese play Fight the Landlord to our shores.
Wryly humorous and fast-paced, three women dressed in panda suits lament the banality of their lives while playing the card game Dòu Dìzhǔ, or ‘Fight the Landlord’. The whole purpose of the performance? To test the boundaries of relationships and sanity with wicked humour and bittersweet sentiment.
Performed by Bai Shuo, Wang Jinglei and writer Sun Yue, Fight the Landlord will make its way to The Arts Centre from August 30 – September 1.
