By William Yang

Like a modern-day Alice in Wonderland, Emma is transported in another world. Through her Grandmother’s tales, she finds herself in Ancient China discovering intriguing artefacts, opinionated dragons and life in the Imperial Court. This is a story of travel, flight from danger, re-invention and identity. Will knowing she is part of the royal lineage of the Imperial Court change Emma?

Inspired by Ah Xian’s sculptures and works in the Asian Collection at the National Gallery of Australia, director Kate Shearer commissioned the award-winning William Yang to write Emma’s Dynasty. Together they have created an enchanting work for all ages which speaks of discovery and travel to inner worlds not yet charted.

Suitable for 8 – 12 year olds and everyone who wants to be that age again.
