The Whisper of the Waves

Shinehouse Theatre (Taiwan)

The Whisper of the Waves  


If disaster were to strike, what would you do and who could you turn to? A lonely taxi driver shares a close bond with a sensitive potted plant. A loving same-sex couple are conflicted about surrogate parenting. A diligent woman accompanies her cat for its last journey. Spirit mediums speak for these characters, voicing their innermost thoughts and feelings. The result is an affecting, ingenious consideration of both nature and human nature. Shinehouse Theatre combine text and movement in a deft, fluidly stylised production. 

Reviews, awards, more information

’Dedicated in its making and performance, this is an intense, poignant and high-quality work’ **** (TheWeeReview).

‘The work is very, very stylish and has a lovely pace and rhythm. Delivery is largely quiet but somehow that only serves to ramp up the depth and intensity.’ **** (SeeingDance).
