No more theatre series is an exploration of new theatre forms.
Over the years, our exploration in Emergency Stairs was centered on challenging the boundaries of theatre conventions, but we need to look further, to see beyond the existing frameworks because contemporary theatre and its iterations are no longer marching in tandem to the contemporary mores.
In addition, boundaries between different mediums and art disciplinaries are increasingly blurred. In our increasingly connected existence, technology has constantly redefined and contested the idea of reality and has deeply impacted the way we live our lives. Social media platforms, instant messaging platforms, video conferencing platforms, and other technologies including artificial intelligence, augmented reality and virtual reality have ubiquitously changed the way humans perceive and interface with reality. Our fundamental experience of/with reality has been irrevocably altered.
Where do theatre and the arts fall within this spectrum?
