PANORAMA Tour Through ITALY was a Smash!

The tour of PANORAMA was a smashing success. We played to sold out houses in Rome, Potenza and Bari, Italy. This unique theater production was a collaboration between La Mama E.T.C in New York City and the Italian theater company MOTUS. The actors played themselves in auditions tapes that unfolded into personal stories of traveling across borders – physical, mental,  cultural and political. See the New York Times review here: https://www.nytimes.com/2018/01/12/theater/review-panorama-motus-under-the-radar.html

The audiences in Italy were so amazing. And so were some of the theaters. The one in Bari was an old opera house.
 Here’s a great review in Italian: https://www.alfabeta2.it/2018/11/11/il-panorama-esistenziale-di-motus/

On a travel day, we were gifted a trip to one of the oldest continuous human settlements – Matera. Behind me are paleolithic caves where the earliest humans settled.

It’s great to be back in New York City after three weeks of touring. Have to catch up on much needed rest before taking off to South Africa to shoot  Season 2 of WARRIOR.

Bye for now.

Oh yes, happy Holidays!  – Perry

The Guardian Brothers Puppet Master voice – Perry Yung

guardian bros.png

I Just voiced the character of the Puppet Master in the English version of China’s The Guardian Brother’s directed by Gary Wang.  It is narrated by Meryl Streep and also stars Edward Norton, Mel Brooks, Nicole Kidman and Bella Thorne, among others. Plot: There’s a crisis in the Chinese Spirit World — humans don’t believe in gods anymore! A Door God, facing unemployment, ventures into the human world to prove his worth, leading to unexpected encounters and transformations for humans and spirits alike.  It was a great privilege an honor to have a hand in sharing this wonderful Chinese story with international audiences.  Should be out this summer, or, by Christmas 2017.

Summer’s going to be busy.  I’ll be working on a theater production with the very cool Italian company Motus at La Mama Umbria in Italy.

Ciao! – Perry
