Crin d’encre is a creature that appears in Hachiro’s dreams. It is born of the young boy’s passion for painting and is brought to life by his brush, a very special brush as it is a lock of Hachiro’s hair that covers silk paper with supple and powerful lines.
Crin d’encre comes out of the paper like some magical apparition, a gracious and agile colt with a thunder cloud coat and night black mane. It prances joyfully in the fields the temple monks have been farming, carelessly trampling on them.
The Crin d’encre show will feature Pao Pi in an adaptation of a traditional tale, to the sound of music and illustrated by a live painting performance.
