咔嚓卡夫卡! Cut Kafka!Organised by: Esplanade - Theatres on the Bay
Performed by: T.H.E Dance Company x Nine Years Theatre
"The tremendous world I have inside my head. But how (to) free myself and free it without being torn to pieces. And a thousand times (I'd) rather be torn to pieces than rather it in me or bury it..." - Franz Kafka, Diaries of Franz Kafka
A cross-disciplinary encounter between dance and theatre, inspired by the surreal world of literary icon Franz Kafka.
Singapore's T.H.E Dance Company and Nine Years Theatre come together for the very first time, led by artistic directors Kuik Swee Boon (T.H.E) and Nelson Chia (Nine Years Theatre), in a playful and moving rumination on human nature and its many faces. Join them on a dreamlike journey, as two of Singapore's leading performing arts companies gallantly experience their own metamorphoses.
Regarded as one of the most influential writers of the 20th century, Franz Kafka's works, including The Metamorphosis, The Trial and The Castle, have had such an impact that they have also given rise to the term "Kafkaesque", in reference to his signature writing style and poignant depictions of human alienation and absurd bureaucracy.
There will be a Drink and Talk session after each performance.
