M1 Patch! A Theatre Festival of Artful Play 2019 PROJECT Utopia
M1 戏戏节 -《望眼吾托邦》
Synopsis

Be inspired by the interplay of different forms and points of view. Free your mind and imagine new worlds for yourself.

“Look closely at the present you are constructing. It should look like the future you are dreaming.” - Alice Walker

Both curious and playful, PROJECT Utopia invites you to join us as we embark on a journey to rediscover our relationship with the world around us.  Five artists from Finland, Germany, Indonesia and Singapore set forth to question what utopia means in a disturbingly unpredictable world. These artists draw upon their respective cultural contexts to create five evocative performance vignettes. These stories are weaved into a vivid tapestry of dreams, comprising of movement, poetry, multimedia, sound and at times, your participation. Together, we hope to offer PROJECT Utopia as a momentary respite to ask: What is your utopia?

Ming Poon (Germany, Singapore) // The Pledge
Dhimas Aryo Satwiko (Germany, Indonesia) // The Forgotten Ones of Omelas
Sini Rautjoki (Finland, Germany) // Sisu
Ang Xiao Ting (Singapore) // Songs of Tau
Kuo Jian Hong (Singapore) // FLAME

PROJECT Utopia is an ongoing theatre project. It is a vault of questions; a space for interactions between disparate cultures and ideas that can spark new potentialities. Through PROJECT Utopia, we project our hopes for a future that we believe we can help to shape.

在不同的形式和观点中游走,在自由的世界里寻找你的新国度

"你所塑造的当下,应该和你梦想打造的未来一致。"  - 艾丽斯·沃克

《望眼吾托邦》本着好奇的玩心,邀请你和我们展开一段旅程,重新探索自身与周围世界的关系。五位分别来自芬兰、德国、印尼和新加坡的艺术工作者,共同提出质疑:在一个令人不安且难以预测的世界中,所谓的乌托邦到底意味着什么?艺术工作者以各自的文化背景为起点, 创作出五段触动内心的表演片段。其中融入了肢体、诗词、多媒体、音效及观众的参与,由五个不同的故事编织成一个生动的梦景。我们希望《望眼吾托邦》能作为一个短暂的间隙,引人思考: 你心中的乌托邦又是什么样的呢?

《望眼吾托邦》是一部持续进行的剧场计划。它是一个题库;一个可以互动的空间,让不同文化和思维摩擦产生标新立异的潜能。我们通过《望眼吾托邦》投射对未来的希望,并相信未来能由我们来塑造。

M1 Patch! A Theatre Festival of Artful Play 2019 A Dog’s House M1 戏戏节 -《野良犬之家》
Play against expectations with this darkly subversive take on a traditional family drama.A dog-like human. A human-like dog.At our bleakest and most desperate, are we human or beast?Everyday, a pair of dog siblings wait to have afternoon tea with their mother. One day, a new family member appears – their supposedly long-lost eldest brother. But no one seems to remember him. Is he simply a lost mongrel, or actually a wild beast in disguise? As the family accepts the stray into their lives, the very foundations of their home begins to crumble. Violence and lust begin to stir in the narrow old apartment…The first prize winner of the 15th Taipei Literature Awards (Play Script category), A Dog’s House is playwright Lin Meng-Huan’s radical take on conventional family plays. Using the metaphor of pets and owners, the play explores intergenerational differences and identities within families, and the ensuing questions on modern society. Through animalized viewpoints, the playwright explores how the self-contradiction and conflicts between family and individual values can lead to devastation, and how we might rebuild from there.Digging deep into the humanity coded within the text, Director Fu Hong-Zheng forges the disintegrating psychological states of each character by shaping the neurotic yet detailed interpretations in the actors’ movement and voice. Derelict and dark on the surface, rich and brutal within, the eccentric, animalistic style serves to realize the deep violence buried within.
