"One morning, he awakes and finds himself transformed into an orchid mantis. He stops at an orchid and pretends to be the orchid. There he remains unseen and undiscriminated. Resting, he is safe, out of human sight."
Using the metaphor of a camouflage insect, this performance draws us into the anonymous lives and private souls of our city. Your neighbour sings her prayers to her deity. When you hear her, do you pray along? Inside a box, a man dances by himself. When he dances with a girl, are they less alone? Their gates keep them safe inside, safe within these beautiful dreams and disguises.
Directed by the adventurous and highly original Loh Kok Man (Best Director Award, BOH Cameronian Arts Awards), this intensely satisfying collaboration now features a star-studded cast and crew of award-winning Malaysian artists: performers Amelia Tan, Ming Low and Shanthini Venugopal, space designer Caecar Chong, composer Ng Chor Guan, video artist Au Sow Yee and writer Tan Yan Tee. They bring with them piercing personal insights into our urban souls, resulting in a complex, poetic and moving work of art about our times and our habitats.
“城失空想”依循城市的主題脈絡， 將劇場變成了一個充滿視覺和聽覺驚喜的 魔幻空間，掀開一頁又一頁屬於城市的備忘錄，在逐步消失的過程中，回頭凝視我城。
2007年，劇場、舞蹈、裝 置、音樂、影像、文字創作 者，對城市的初表態，催生了《城失空想．一個殘缺不全支離破碎失憶症患者的十個備忘錄》。
2010年，紀念我們摯愛的創作夥伴張忠勇，我 們 再度反芻城市生活的種種姿態，寫下屬於我們和城市相濡以沫的十個備忘錄。
羅國文、張忠勇、Shanthini Venugopal、陳燕棣、區琇詒、 劉銘、黃楚原、陳淑真跨領域集體創作。Supported by:HSBC, klpac & Colorganda!
