The Ballad of Mulan
Woman, warrior, legend.
For ten years Mulan, disguised as a man, has fought for the Chinese Empire. Now the fighting is coming to an end, one last battle and she will be going home – but can she return to her old life and become a woman again?
A search for identity in a violent world.
Commissioned by and performed by West Yorkshire-born British-Chinese actress Michelle Yim in this one-woman show, developed with the support and funding from Arts Council England.
Produced by the team behind Edfringe Sell-Out The Unknown Soldier Grist to the Mill, in collaboration with British East Asian theatre company Red Dragonfly Productions, we bring you the real Chinese heroine that inspired Disney’s animation and live-feature Mulan.
We can’t wait to welcome you to the theatre and we’re taking active steps to ensure that everyone can feel safe, relaxed and enjoy the show. Read our latest Covid measures here.
‘A powerful exploration of gender, war, and identity, as relevant and timely today as ever. Expect a little humour, a lot of heart and a refreshing focus on the darker aspects of a familiar tale’
Tulpa Magaine, Adelaide Fringe
