Synopsis:

Height. Weight. Size. PSLE Grades. CAP Score. Postal Code. Phone Number. Lucky numbers. Numbers to be avoided. What do they all add up to?

Directed by Singapore theatre practitioner Judy Ngo (Family Secrets, If There Are Seasons) and devised together with NUS Chinese Drama, The Child Who Loved Numbers explores how numbers have different social and cultural meanings across borders and generations. In carrying the weight of these numbers on our shoulders, we reflect how they have necessarily or perhaps unduly affected the way we view ourselves.

我们往往习惯以数字衡量人生的各方面,如身高、体重、年龄、房价、分数、薪水。但在什么时候开始,我们需要用数字作为幸福感,存在感,成就感,甚至是人生价值的凭据?

有些人总需要以数字证明自己的价值。有些人虽受数字所束缚却能够勇于突破数字所限,创造更好的自己。你呢?

由吴美箬指导,国立大学中文戏剧社制作,通过《喜欢数字的孩子》,让我们一起探讨数字在现今生活中的地位。
