Invisible Cities / Decameron

Danny Yung x post-90s young people

Weaving together stories about themselves and the city

in experimental theatre

Invisible Cities / Decameron is a cross-disciplinary theatre work developed and created by Danny Yung together with post-90s young theatre makers through a creative process that explores the body, sounds, space, technology, symbols and structure, and that entails cross-disciplinary exchange and learning.

A dialogue between Giovanni Boccaccio and Italo Calvino

Decameron (1351) by Giovanni Boccaccio and Invisible Cities (1972) by Italo Calvino are two masterpieces in Italian literature. In the former, young men and women escape from a plagued city and take turn to tell tales at night, and in the latter, Marco Polo describes to Kublai Khan cities he has seen on his travels.

Our young performers will weave together stories about themselves and this city in this experimental theatre piece inspired by the two books.
