Live Performance between David Hancock and Yingmei Dua

In their performance the artists Yingmei Duan & David Hancock act out a very beautiful melancholie fairy tale with puppets which they build the story inspirted by a real life from an old couple.

They are an elderly couple. During the performance a peaceful and content life is depicted, the couple takes good care of each other but unexpectedly the old woman dies one day, and life suddenly changes forever. This performance is an exploration of the role of the elderly in contemporary society.
