Prog. notes: Three strangers met at a ferry: a young girl who needed to make a pilgrimage at a Buddhist temple across the river urgently; a woodcutter who was looking for a rare herb to sell to prove his value; an elderly ferryman who was trying to restore his lost power through taking people across the river. The choices of the characters showed human drama of desire, salvation and selfless devotion. A Ferry Tale combines elements of folk theatre, folk song, computer music and new media arts. It is an exploration of new media arts in the fields of musical theatre.
