Best Space Award

Tamora (Restricted)

"Visual designer: Willy Yang Photographer: Makoto Jiang Director: Ina Li Adapted from Shakespeare’s play, Titus Andronicus.

The code of Hammurabi: “If a man put out the eye of another man, his eye shall be put out.”

A journey of revenge turned the calm looking old condo into a slaughter house. The first floor, the second floor, and the third floor…. The more civilized the means, the more silent it kills.

The series of “where is classic?” combines both exotic environment and a classic script. We will see you at this abandoned old house this time!"

Performing Artists / Play Around Theatre Company

"Director Ina Li came back from England with a MFA degree in Staging Shakespeare in 2008.

The only thing she learned in her four-year-stay in England is listening.

Listening to the stories, and telling them in her own way.

Play Around Theatre Company is grouped by her and her friends from the old time. The target of the series of “where is classic?” is doing all kinds of classic play in an unusual place, a place outside of theatre."

The Bright Room

To sit, or not to sit?

To do, or not to do?

Is that a question?


Performing Artists / DT_R99

We are making a play where the senses, which are usually possessed by the player and the audience alike, are absent.

We wonder what it would ""look"" like if people lost their sight in the theatre.

Dumb Waiter

Most of you misunderstand one thing: The most important work of a hitman is to kill. You’re getting it so wrong. In fact, every trained hit man knows well that the priority work is to wait. The key of waiting doesn’t lie in the length of time but in the accurate calculation… As I arrived at the appointed location, I arranged the routes and got to know the position of other personnel. Right…I must do so…wait…Why was the Kentucky Fried Chicken in McDonald's paper bag?

Performing Artists / The Roaring

These are the words spoken by our ancestors - that lay at the heart of our creed.

Where other men blindly follow the truth, remember...nothing is true.

Where other men are limited, by morality or law, remember...Everything is permitted.

We work in the Bore, to serve the Fun.

We are The Roaring.
