Three Monks

Presented by Adelaide Festival Centre and China National Theatre for Children Beijing

China
Adelaide Premiere

In a small temple, on top of a mountain, live three monk students and their old master. They live together in peace, but things weren’t always so easy for them…

As the monks reflect on the how they came together, the audience is taken on a heart-warming journey of laughter, imagination and discovery.

This beautiful wordless production has been adapted from an ancient Chinese fable and integrates martial arts, physical theatre, comedy, traditional Chinese opera and classic elements of Chinese culture.

Performed in 27 cities across 18 countries, Three Monks has charmed family audiences around the world with its philosophy of unity and cooperation. 

★★★★½ “A compelling show for all ages… an easy recommend for the whole family.” Sean Warhurst, Melbourne reviewer
“A drama full of traditional beauty... that tells the ancient story in a completely new way without any words, which gave audiences a deep impression.” China News
“A classic example of wordless physical expression.” Dawn Islamabad
