A Dream of Red Dragonflies

By Trevor Hay

Restless China scholar Rubert Robinson leaves the refuge of his studio in Montsalvat artists' colony in outer Melbourne and embarks upon travels with Xiaorong, his former student, in order to discover and illuminate fragments of the age-old encounter between China and the West.

During their quest through old and new worlds they discover a parallel realm of fascination, misunderstanding, pain and delight - all within their own relationship. Like other cultural voyagers before them, they find both sanctuary and exile within a landscape of ever shifting perspectives.
