FIVE CHINESE BROTHERS
By Alan Chan. Presented in partnership with Honolulu Theatre for Youth
Five Chinese Brothers could be called the first super-hero story, where people–not gods or mythical creatures– had extraordinary abilities. Wildly interactive, this romp through Ming Dynasty China draws on traditional Chinese theatrical techniques in a new take on the classic children’s story, in which five identical brothers each possess a special talent.
The Asawa SOTA Theatre Department's exciting production utilizes the Chinese theatre style, often called Peking Opera. Our ensemble will incorporate elements of acting, singing, and martial arts to bring this story to the Studio Theatre stage. There are several exciting Peking Opera martial art fight sequences, including one using fishing poles, and one set in the dark. A highlight of the show is the battle with the Sea Dragon, in which the brothers once again use their skills to save the day.
