A much loved and revered Chinese tale tells the story of Zhu Yingtai and Liang Shanbo.  This story, much like Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, depicts a legend of two lovers whose relationship was frowned upon by the social conventions of their time. Their circumstances were only resolved when the two were transformed into beautiful butterflies and thus escaped their otherwise dismal, separate fates. The love shared between the characters in this tale have inspired numerous literary works, paintings, violin concertos, opera’s and cinema. In ‘Reunited’, Liu Dao merges traditional Chinese symbolism with a dreamy yet contemporary tech narrative. Now the flickering souls of lovers far from forgotten, are free to spend their days in interrupted reverie. [Margaret Johnson]
