A solo play about a boy, a fly and a corpse on one breezy summer night. A metamorphic human experience on one particular night. A hybrid of fiction & truth, absurdity & solemnity with a mixed timeline of past, present, and prophecy. A miniature portrait of contemporary rural China in the dawn of the nation’s largest economic reform. A life condensed in 45mins.

Inspired by a true event, NEAR DAWN draws from the tradition and history of China’s underdeveloped countryside in the early 1980s, and presents a story about belonging and solitude.
