Red Chamber in the Concrete Forest
Three empathetic encounters with ladies of the night. The gradual metamorphosis of one young man's life.
In Red Chamber, a compassionate looks at dysfunctional sexual relationships driven by a materialist society. A socially inept, social media-obsessed man seeks 'love' from a teenage girl who gives her body in exchange for designer gear, a lady of the night and a professional mistress. What revelations in love and life would they bring him?
Commissioned and produced by the Hong Kong Arts Festival 2014, Red Chamber in the Concrete Forest by Wang Haoran explores lost souls cast adrift by China's rapid urbanization.
