She waits for airplanes to cross the sky. She wants to see the outside world. She folds paper planes. She takes a flight. She leaves home. She arrives in a foreign country. She feels invisible. She asks why.
A storyteller stands alone on the stage, sharing a story about an invisible character.
The Invisible is a one-woman show drawing on the real experiences of living in a foreign country, incorporating storytelling, live camera, video projection, music and movement. It aims to explore the vulnerability, homesickness and otherness of Asian communities overseas, offering a new perspective on current contemporary discussions around immigration, alienation and home.
★★★★ “Yuyu Wang’s one-woman show has the potential to be an outstanding piece of theatre. As it is, The Invisible is already a beautifully written and understated examination of identity and belonging… Wang has the intensity and charisma to carry this off in spades and her magnetic performance makes it easy for the audience to invest in this story” Fairy Powered Productions
“Cheeky Chin’s latest production, The Invisible, is a raw, heart-felt one act play that delves into feelings of loneliness and isolation… it’s intensely emotional and personal, achieving a rare feeling of intimacy between audience and performer” The Spy in the Stalls
