The Ballad of Mulan
The story of the real woman behind the Chinese Legend
Performed by Michelle Yim
Written and Directed by Ross Ericson
Weapon and Armour by Philip Dell
Costume by Elizabeth Cooke
A woman, a warrior, a Chinese legend.
Michelle Yim ('The Empress and Me' and 'The Unforgettable Anna May Wong') brings to life the real Mulan who, to save her family's honour, disguised herself as a man and joined the Emperor's army. For ten years she has kept her identity a secret. Now the fighting is coming to an end, one last battle and she will be going home – but how can she return to her old life, become a woman again, does she even want to? A search for identity in a violent world.
This is Michelle's third solo show and is developed with funding support from Arts Council England.
