Shouxin Kuaile 收信快乐 Love Letters
June 2021 - June 2021
A Monological & Digital Theater Produced by Ying Ming Theater in Göttingen, Germany
The innocence and ignorance of youth is a poem as it may seem and a mystery as I can dream. Shuttlecocking letters from afar for forty years, I look for a love in my life. I wonder if time could stop at the moment when we first met, without dislocation, delusion and discrepancies.
Shouxin Kuaile (Love Letters) is adapted from a drama of the same name, in which the motif of “love and regret” has been re-examined and constructed. The work highlights the thinking about encounters in life and the argument of free will, showing how individuals experience inner conflicts in front of choices. This drama uses monologues and cross-media to present the heavy emotional burden carried by the two characters through the artistic technique of “cinema theater”. When the minimalist theater scenes and the verbal metaphor in the language of camera/photography meet, Shouxin Kuaile, a post dramatic theater, will provide the audience a unique aesthetic experience online.
This drama premieres at the 5th European Chinese Theater Festival (Online Special, June 24-26) in Frankfurt.
