Two people from the nuclear explosion affected area. She speaks, he can’t. He once witnessed a person being choked to death by the broken pieces of his organs; then he often has the feeling to be choked. They come here to introduce another face of post nuclear explosion. In there, the nature grows freely, flowers blossom. Green is the warmest colour. Animals lead their lives happily. But they can’t use conditioners and lotions in order not to be contaminated by radioactivity elements. Apart from these, nothing is not fine for living there.
After the big hit of "A concise history of future China", Pat To YAN uncovers another dangerous issue which is most relevant to us. This time, he works it out with a form of performance lecture with technology artists. The experience of theatre as well as the text will be like no others.
