••••••••••

A taxi driver fetches an old woman on her way to an old folks home. As the journey progresses, the driver becomes increasingly lost. Wandering in circles, once familiar streets become strangely unfamiliar, and landmarks fade into the long night.

 

The temple is about to be demolished, there are too many gods to move, and no one can decide which gods are relocated and which gods are destroyed. Suddenly, the taxi driver arrives.

 

 

Landmarks fade.

Time shifts.

And even gods get left behind.

 

A taxi driver. His very occupation takes him to different places and different people. Constantly moving. It does not matter if he desires to move. He moves anyway.

 

A young woman. She dreams of a past life that she does not recognise. She searches to save the past from being forgotten. But why must she remember it, she does not know. Or does she need to remember the past at all?

 

An old woman searches to find a future; a young man’s job preserves the past.

 

We move.

We remember.

We search.

 

For what? We do not know.

Time’s up. We have to go.

 

Sooner or later, even gods have to move.

Our theatre should aspire to objectively critique life, respectfully entertain audiences, and forever explore new uncharted territories. Based on this basic consensus, we shall debate among ourselves vigorously as we support each other loyally.
