Hoichi The Earless

Darkness. The soft glow of Chinese lanterns and the murmur of crickets and owls.


We are transported to a slower-moving world of ritual, chant and meditation. A terrible massacre prompts the building of a

temple to protect the local community from the ghosts of the victims. This is a haunting tale, presented by Theatre Ronin from

Hong Kong, involving text, movement and the music and song of Hoichi the young blind girl.


Themes of humility, vanity, greed and hypocrisy are explored to quietly devastating effect. A beautiful, understated and

powerful treat







Hoichi The Earless is at C Venues, C South until August 10th
