Mad Monk

(30 mins) – performance

This series is the beginnings of a new work. Borned in the indo-china rural town near a temple, an older man returns from his 4 decades of living in the west. He took refuge at the local temple and has taken the robes of a monk in disguise, hiding from the world, but the ghosts of his travels and past do not leave him alone.
