Award winning composer/storyteller Angel Lam tells a new story with her original music and visual projections. Through recent visits to China she discovered a forgotten diary that chronicles an adventurous journey and a culture now lost to time.

In a merciless land, a young man saves the fate of a girl who died three days before… Based on a true story, an untold secret from 1920's China comes alive through a new presentation in the Chinese tea house style of storytelling.

The performance also includes visual artist Catherine Lan fur relief painting “Magic Window I”, inspired by "Ghost Wife" 's late Qing architectural ornaments of the elegant Sai Kwan mansion in Old Guangzhou.
