Synopsis:

"你们不会看到一出戏"

你们走进剧场,看到四个无名无姓的表演者,在一个无拘无束的空间里。没有情节,他们也不表演悲欢离合;不限场景,时间也没有了起承转合。那么,剧场里将会发生什么?当剧场里不再表演"假",是否一切就都是"真"?

1966年,奥地利著名剧作家彼得•汉德克发表了使他一举成名的剧作《冒犯观众》,对传统戏剧公开挑战,引起空前的轰动。

半个世纪后,青年艺术奖得主刘晓义,召集了一组新加坡剧场最杰出的艺术工作者:谢燊杰、钟达成、李邪、洪艺冰、黄泽晖和林菀雯,经历数月的对话、讨论,对剧本进行改编和再创作,试图在前人成功的基础上,向剧场的可能性再做新的实验,为当代观众重新演绎这一出戏剧史上的"反戏剧"经典。

"You will see no play"

Four nameless performers, in a space without boundaries. No plot, no love nor sorrow, no more roller coaster narrative. And the stage does not represent another place. What then shall happen in theatre? When all pretence is stripped, is everything then genuine?

In 1966, Austrian playwright Peter Handke rose to prominence with Offending the Audience, a play that challenged perceptions of theatre and rocked the establishment of the day.

Five decades later, this special Huayi commission sees Young Artist Award recipient Liu Xiaoyi leading a creative team of the most outstanding Singaporean theatre artists—Nelson Chia, Oliver Chong, Li Xie, Ang Gey Pin, Darren Ng and Lim Woan Wen—to devise and create an original adaptation through relentless experimentation and dialogue. Pushing new boundaries in theatre, they rework the antitheatre classic for a modern audience.
