The Complete Works of Kuo Pao Kun ②: Plays in Chinese (The 1980s)
Detained without trial for four and a half years, Kuo Pao Kun underwent a major reflection on his perceptions and thoughts. He was released in 1980 and resumed directing, producing and writing plays immediately. Moving away from his previous trait of overt social criticism, Kuo began to explore new creative challenges and theatrical styles. By remembering and reflecting local realities, Kuo’s essential humanism was reflected in his vision of theatre.
