Śūnyatā (a Sanskrit word meaning "voidness") is the fourth production in composer Law Wing-fai's "Atmospheric Music Theatre" series, striving to exemplify the concept and direction of the composer's most recent artistic creations.  Simply put, it utilizes the contemporary theatre as a means of expression to complement the natural timbres of Chinese musical instruments, coupling with poetry, songs, music, dance and various visual elements to cultivate a mood for reflection as well as a taste of Oriental aesthetics.  Śūnyatā comprises three sections, namely: "Loka" (meaning "world" in Sanskrit), "Yonder" and "Awakening".
