A world of play exploding with emotions. A world of imagination explored through expressive bodies.
Created by Kuo Jing Hong and Ong Guat Teng, Play Play is about rediscovering the freedom within ourselves to play, and about finding how to see everything around us as a game: not to win but to enjoy every moment of it, not to succeed but to discover the infinite possibilities.
As identities transmute in accord with the fluid settings and narratives traverse horizontally across time and space, the four performers who uses their bodies to manifest settings and create sound effects in a stunning display of physical theatre and movement.
Play Play was presented as part of The Theatre Practice’s Poor Theatre Series and has also been presented at the Happy Asia Theatre Festival 2006 (Shanghai), Fat Bird Theatre 2006 (Shen Zhen) and The Chinese University of Hong Kong 2006 (Hong Kong) and the Darwin Festival 2007 (Australia).
