Threshold: 1 Table 2 Chairs Experimental Series 2013

Explorations on traditional and contemporary arts
One table / Two chairs / Twenty minutes / Two performers
The rules are simple, but the outcome is far from simple.

“One table two chairs” is the most basic staging used in traditional Chinese opera. When adapted by actors in their performance, the spatial possibilities are infinite. Every year, we invite artists from different background and disciplines to collaborate and present three new experimental works. This year, we present a unique twist to the program. Unrestricted by form, directors are tasked to devise an original work with one table and two chairs as the primary stimulus.

This year makes the second instalment of this experimental series. Kuo Jian Hong will direct Ric Liu and Isabella Chiam. Liu Xiao Yi will direct Huang Suhuai and Hung Chit-Wah, Felix. Lim Chin Huat will direct Lv Lin Xuan and Tan Yuyang, Ellison.
