The multimedia production The Bizarre Fairy Tales uses live music, animation and acting to tell three extraordinary stories that express concern on humankind and civilisation. The One-eyed tells the tale of a person who can foresee people’s misfortunes. In Dream Guardians – set in the town of Amnesia – a group of revolutionaries searches for lost memories. Ode to Joy follows a child who discovers a wrong but entertaining way of telling yarns.
Mournful music and fascinating animations are combined to create divergence but at the same time they blend in perfect harmony, leaving the audience wavering between feelings of joy and melancholy.
Founded just last year, the Breakthrough Association aims to promote Macao’s cultural development and nurture the region’s artistic talents through diverse performances and activities.
