1984 by SRT's The Young Company
Synopsis

After two years of practical training in all aspects of theatre, Singapore Repertory Theatre's The Young Company will perform 1984 as their graduation show.

Based on the iconic novel by George Orwell, 1984 brings us the story of Winston Smith, a cog in the giant machine state of Oceania. Physically and mentally under the omnipresent eye of Big Brother, Winston has been caught struggling for scraps of love and freedom in a world awash with distrust and violence. 

With the brutal "help" of four Party Members, Winston is forced to confess his Thoughtcrimes before an unseen inquisitor, and the audience -- which acts as a silent witness to his torture. A ferocious and provocative adaptation of one of the most prescient works of literature of the last century.

“You’ve read the New Yorker article.  You’ve heard all of your artist friends talk about him.  Now you can hear Chinese dissident artist Lin Bo speak … about the work that got him jailed back home.”  (Los Angeles Times Critics’ Pick)Within a regime that smothers free speech and gives breath to fake news, one voice dared to speak the truth.  But, there are two sides to every story; and, when the stakes are survival, who’s to judge what’s fact, and what’s fiction?Anointed by The New Yorker as our generation’s most subversive performance artist, Lin Bo became an international media sensation after his escape from captivity.  In honour of his release, SRT commissioned Drama Desk award-winning director Ed Sylvanus Iskandar to create an immersive evening, featuring an exclusively curated art exhibition.  Now a fugitive, Lin will travel to Singapore to give a mystery performance, using text created by OBIE award-winner Christopher Chen, which he describes as:  “The idea itself is the art.”   Enter a labyrinth where reality and fantasy blend into a incisively funny, mind-bending, and compulsively addictive experience where things are not as they first appear.Never stop questioning the truth.Never stop questioning the story.How far down the rabbit hole are you prepared to go? “Part immersive theater, part performance art, part installation, part thrust theater, part food and drinks, and pure play, this exhilarating look into politics, propaganda, and perception is pocked with paradox.”  (Stage and Cinema)- Gallery opens 15 mins before event start time.- Enjoy complimentary guided tours and purchase food and drinks upon gallery opening.- Please wear comfortable shoes and note that there is limited parking at the venue.
