China's burgeoning wealth is transforming the Western society in aspects beyond politics: education, culture, food, finance, environmental issues and so on. As more and more Chinese pursue education and employment overseas, the new generation of Chinese immigrants has gained a global mindset and understanding of democratic culture.
These young and passionate Chinese theatre makers are striving to create new narratives based on their individual experiences. Their works challenge conventional social criticisms and weighty burdens are often found in stories about contemporary China.
