The Ballad of Mulan
Touring UK 2020-2021
Woman, warrior, Legend.
For ten years Mulan disguised as a man, has fought for the Chinese Empire, but 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.
'The Ballad of Mulan' is British-Chinese actress Michelle Yim's third solo-show commission. The project was supported using funding from Arts Council England. The production previewed at Buxton Fringe 2019 and debuted at Edinburgh Fringe 2019, and then toured to UK venues and schools during Chinese New Year 2020.

''A powerful exploration of gender, war, and identity, as relevant and timely today as ever.'
'Michelle Yim is absolutely terrific as Mulan. She holds the stage with a commanding presence as well as charm and warmth. We feel for Mulan's dilemma, as well as being impressed with her fighting skills.'
