Monkeying Around Backstage at Monkey: Journey to the West

Conceived of, written and directed by Chen Shi-Zheng and with music by Damon Albarn (best known for his work with the Gorillaz musical collective), Monkey: Journey to the West is based on an ancient Chinese tale about a Monkey King who leads a monk on a journey to find the Buddha. Aerial choreographer and coach Heather Hammond went backstage at the production to give Playbill a peek at the intricate workings of the show which features a cast of Chinese acrobats, singers, contortionists and martial artists. The production plays the Lincoln Center Festival through July 28. Read the Playbill story.
