The Cycles of Life
It has an Asian philosophy and outlook on life. I like the symbolism of Karma and the yin and the yang. The yin and the yang represents the positive and negative forces battling within the characters in the drama. Karma or action is affected by positive or negative forces and can result in consequences beyond our control. The drama weaves this underlying theme delicately in the music, lighting, storyline, and character development. The blending of abstract symbolism of negative and positive Karma is excellent throughout the drama. We are linked together in this endless cycle of life, binding our future to our past. The link to our ancestors and to our descendants can not be broken. The sins of the parents are inherited and passed down to the children. The four main characters was confronted with the same conflicts and choices their parents had faced when they were the young.
Do they make the same mistake their parents had made when they were young and never repeat it, or do they keep making those same mistakes their parents had made, knowing that it?s wrong?.
