F/T17 Love’s Labour’s Lost
This event has ended.
This play by a leading figure in cutting-edge contemporary Chinese theater portrays the lives of young people addicted to the Internet and pop culture. It shares its title with the Shakespearian comedy about young nobles who take an oath not to court women. Set in a room bursting with strange and colorful items bought online, the female inhabitants have fun with absent companions by live streaming their existences via their mobile phones and computers. Though the wanton chaos of their daily lives might well repel us, for these girls it is their ideal world. As time passes almost as if no one is watching, the divisions between stage and audience, the virtual and the real, slowly fade away.
*There will be a post-performance talk following the show.
