Marco and Polo, led by the shadows of Dante and Sheherazada, journey from Venetian darkness across seas, desert and the high Himalayas to arrive at The Wall. Kublai Khan awaits them: on a balcony, in the auditorium and on stage. Medieval chant, ancient timbres, violence, longing and the sensuality of nature open a world of light.
In four dreams and three interviews, Marco and Polo are led by the Shadows of Shakespeare, Feud and John Cage to examine inner space. Chuang Zi dreams as a butterfly; Mahler and Li Po drink to the song of the earth. In China or elsewhere, is contact possible? Can love be achieved? Kublai still waits; Marco and Polo give way to Marco Polo; the unending begins.
