In a tiny mountain village beyond the reach of clouds, gossip is the currency and tradition is everything.

Little Sparrow arrives to find a world driven by superstition and dark histories.

To survive crooked peddlers, invisible spirits and a mother-in-law with a hidden agenda, she’s got to learn to fly with the flock.

But the more Little Sparrow grasps her role in the game, the more everything tips out of balance into a terrifying new direction.

Caught in the middle of an uprising where tradition is being burnt to the ground, Little Sparrow is forced to make a choice that will change the future of the village forever.

In this debut development season of an original production, Proudly Asian Theatre blends shadow play, masks and interactive performance to create a world like you've never seen before.

Check out the review in the NZ Herald.
