    About the show: “Ionah” is the story of a beautiful young girl whose love for Hanoi is as pure and as strong as it is for her young boyfriend. Her happiness and love are put to the test when an accident causes an unfortunate delay and a serious misunderstanding.

    The story is set in motion as Ionah waits for her sweetheart and becomes increasingly angry that he is late. Unable to curb her fury, the girl vents her anger with a slap on her sweetheart's cheek. This act of inflicting pain on another causes Ionah to immediately be punished, as she is hurled into a fantasy world where she undergoes a bizarre journey of soul-searching.

    Ionah's deep resentment, jealousy and anger push her into the darkest corners of her soul. Lost in her illusion and blinded by anger, Ionah is tormented by shadows and gloom: she meets a series of supernatural characters such as giant spiders, the king of bats, dancing skeletons, and the ferryman of the forgetful, each symbolizing her worst feelings. Yet hope remains; along her journey beautiful creatures and friends remind her of love, beauty, and happiness. Ionah faces the demons in her mind, bravely escaping the darkness and returning to the reality of life, happiness, and love. Ionah returns to the arms of her boyfriend and is surrounded by friends in their lovely Hanoi.

    Delightful imagination is on display through a diverse language of genres including modern dance, theatrical arts, break dancing, and visual arts. The play was inspired by the Divine Comedy by Dante Alighieri and many scenes are strongly influenced by Western mythology. Ionah uses state-of-the-art visual and audio technology to conjure the surreal world of Lady Ionah's journey along with top-notch visual design and music composition.
