Nick Payne's play CONSTELLATIONS has been well received on Broadway with Jake Gyllenhaal and in the West End with Sally Hawkins, but the award-winning Chinese production has its own special charm. Director Wang Chong adds live video and a live hamster to the work. The result is a unique experience that is contemporary, complex, and intimate. Following the success of their Under the Radar debut Thunderstorm 2.0 in 2018, Wang and his Beijing-based company Théâtre du Rêve Expérimental brings multimedia acting to another level.


Performed in Mandarin Chinese with supertitles in English.

Run Time: 1 hour and 30 minutes

Constellations is made possible with the generous support of the Beijing Contemporary Art Foundation.

It captures the loneliness of humans and the vastness of the universe through simplistic means. The moments of the actress getting into alienating from the character provide great emotion. It is excellently done.
