Presented by The Nonsensemakers 糊塗戲班 (Hong Kong)
“This intimate show is irresistibly heartwarming.” Corrie Tan, The Straits Times (Singapore)
“他們用面具來表達內心感情，除了靠肢體動作外，還要達到與觀眾心靈上的溝通，陳文剛和魏綺珊兩人是做到了。”– 杜國威，劇作家 （香港）
Travel with Mum is beautifully told through a masked theatre play on the virtues of filial piety accompanied by folksy live music and inspired by the touching story of Wang Yi-Min who spent all his life with his mother in a village in Liaoning, China. The 74-year-old man takes his 99-year-old mother on a journey across China. Starting in Heilongjiang, they set off for Tibet on a 900-day journey that spans over 30, 000 kilometres.
His mother, who had toiled her entire life for her family, has never travelled out of her rural hometown. The man is determined to fulfil his mum’s wish to see the beauty of the world while she still can. Together, they travel on a rickety tricycle, pedalling through rural villages and fast-paced cities, valleys and over hills. As they ride on, he discovers that staying by his mum’s side is the greatest reward he can give to both of them.
