The net, a knot and a noose are places where the web of fate is drawn tighter. They evoke the mysteries of binding and loosening, fate and freewill, suffering and transformation.
In Asian cultures, the knot holds special spiritual significance. It represents the interwoven and endless cycle of suffering of birth, death and rebirth, and the Interplay of the opposing forces in the dualistic world of manifestation, the struggle leading to their union, and ultimately to harmony in the universe.
Panel Discussion with composer Jason Kao Hwang, cast members: Kelly Hamlin, Teri Miller Buschman and Heather MacNeill.
