Mulan: Woman, warrior, legend.

For ten years Mulan disguised as a man, has fought for the Chinese Empire. Now the fighting is coming to an end, one last battle and she will be going home - but can she return to her old life, become a woman again. A search for identity in a violent world.
We bring you the real Chinese heroine that inspired Disney's animation and live-feature Mulan.
"A powerful exploration of gender, war, and identity, as relevant and timely today as ever. Expect a little humour, a lot of heart and a refreshing focus on the darker aspects of a familiar tale" ★★★★ Tulpa Magaine, Adelaide Fringe
Plus special guest opening performance from Ying, an exquisite south west based traditional Chinese ribbon dancer.
