 Travel With Mum  by The Nonsensemakes (Hong Kong)
Take in a masked theatre play on the virtues of filial piety based on a true story and accompanied by folksy live music.
“This intimate show is irresistibly heartwarming.” Corrie Tan, The Straits Times (Singapore)

The Nonsensemakers is a prolific, independent professional theatre company in Hong Kong. It has produced more than 70 performances since 1990, with many receiving the Hong Kong Drama Award. The troupe persists in creating high-quality works, making theatre performances an integral part of people’s lives.

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.
