About The Performance
Travel with Mum is beautifully told through a masked theatre play on the virtues of
filial piety accompanied by folksy live music and inspired by the touching
story of Wang Yi-Min who spent all his life with his mother in a village in
Liaoning, China. The 74-year-old man takes his 99-year-old mother on a journey
across China. Starting in Heilongjiang, they set off for Tibet on a 900-day
journey that spans over 30,000 kilometres.
His mother, who had toiled her entire
life for her family, has never travelled out of her rural hometown. The man is
determined to fulfil his mum’s wish to see the beauty of the world while she
still can. Together, they travel on a rickety tricycle, pedalling through rural
villages and fast-paced cities, valleys and over hills. As they ride on, he
discovers that staying by his mum’s side is the greatest reward he can give to
both of them.
