Quantum Theatre_Chimerica_-Web-Show-Title

November 27 – December 19, 2021

By Lucy Kirkwood
Directed by Karla Boos
Art Direction by Susan Tsu

Lucy Kirkwood’s award-winning play reminds us of an image that arrested the world: a protester facing down four tanks in Tiananmen Square in 1989. Who was he, and who was the photojournalist who captured it? From there to the fraught present of US/China relations, it examines capitalism and culture, journalism and censorship.
