World Premiere. Following his acclaimed one-man production of Shakespeare's King lear during Festival 2011, Contemporary Legend Theatre's Wu Hsing-kuo returns with a mesmerising deconstruction of Franz Kafka's seminal novella. Through poetry, music and live interplay with video projections, Wu showcases the spectacular techniques, colour and flair of traditional Peking Opera to transport Kafka's early 20th-century tale of disaffection, anxiety, solitude and loneliness from industrial Europe to a fantasy world laced with the beauty of ancient Eastern cultures. Performed in Mandarin with English supertitles.Adapted by Wu Hsing-Kuo. Translation Bi-Qi Beatrice Lei. Company Contemporary Legend Theatre. Director Wu Hsing-Kuo. Design Lin Keh-Hua.
