Chinese Literary collective MatterLess 所谓诗社 will be presenting re:Verse 4.0: Poetry/Displacement (砸诗烩4.0: 流离诗所), a series of adaptations of local literary works, which serves as a response or interpretation of the text through a fusion of theatrical elements. This fourth edition of the programme is underpinned by Kuo Pao Kun’s notion of Cultural Orphans, which is described as “a sense of loss and alienation, and a kind of anxiety in the search of self”. It seeks to re-examine the physical and tangible daily appearances that we choose to (or not) identify ourselves with and uncover the juxtapositions within the intangible aspects of our cultural identities and selves.
Performed in English and Mandarin, with some surtitles.
