This jazzy Richard III (performed in Mandarin by mainland Chinese actors and enhanced by multimedia on stage) was directed by Mr. LIN Zhaohua, a key figure in avant-garde theater in East Asia. He began his career in 1951 with the preeminent, state-funded, Beijing People's Arts Theatre (BPAT) and established his own company, the Lin Zhaohua Workshop, in 1989.
