Message from Director
The Chinese title of this play, 10 Bearings and 1 Flash, is a term in Buddhism.
10 Bearings means everywhere and the whole world.
In ancient India, a location could be represented with 10 bearings, which are:
Front, back, left, right, right front, left front, right back, left back, up and down.
Flash refers to the flow of thought. 1 Flash means one idea as well as a moment.
To me, 10 Bearings and 1 Flash means:
A flash of inspiration comes with images from all directions.
Therefore, this is a story about creativity and artists
Things begin with a cause and live for a thought.
