Typhoon Festival 2009


Yellow Earth partners with Greenwich Theatre for Typhoon 6 as we take our annual International Playreading festival – featuring some of the most exciting theatre from China, Singapore, Vietnam, America and the UK – to Greenwich Theatre for the very first time.

A unique and vital event in the theatre calendar, TYPHOON 6 showcases the best of contemporary East Asian theatre with plays that happily cross continents’: a “madwoman” is afraid of cameras; a rap band is searching for its identity; a migrant family sees the collapse of an entire life of hard work… just some of the extraordinary, entertaining and thought provoking stories featuring in TYPHOON 6.

TYPHOON 6 will run from Sunday 21 – Thursday 25th June, 2009.

Keep an eye on our TYPHOON 6 page for further festival details.

This autumn the partnership will continue with the premieres of two plays at Greenwich Theatre, Boom! from Singapore and wAve from the USA. These two plays featured in the 2008 International Typhoon 5 Festival.
