Theme


The theme of this year's Wuzhen Theatre Festival is Luminosity .


Luminosity

It is energy that emanates from the sun.

It is the shine, the glow from the moon.

It is enlightenment.

It is reflection.

It is pioneering and courage.

It is the comprehensive whole.

“Luminosity” is a word related to brightness and clarity.

The Records of the Ancient Historian tells us: “The enlightened one looks within, the strong one masters himself.”

The year 2017 is the year of the Rooster. The ancient Book of Songs reads: “The rooster has crowed, the eastern sky is bright now.”

“Luminosity” is both an engagement and a promise between the 5th Wuzhen Theatre Festival and its audiences.

The rooster is crowing, the east is brightening.
