  • The playwright, director, and cast of New York theater company Gold No Trade's production of The Subtle Body will engage in a dialogue with the public in anticipation of the play's premiere at the Shanghai Dramatic Art Center's ACT Festival on November 5th and 6th. The ensemble will perform excerpts from the bilingual historical comedy that explores "scientific and romantic experimentations on the human heart" when a British couple travels to Qing-era China to research pulse diagnosis in Chinese medicine. A group of local experts will respond to the piece and engage in a discussion about the history of Chinese and Western medicine and challenges of translation in multicultural theatrical projects.
