No More Theatre

No More Theatre Series is an exploration of new theatre forms.

Over the years, our exploration was centred 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 does theatre and the arts fall within this spectrum?

Through the No More Theatre Series, we will collaborate with experts in the field of science and technology to explore new theatre forms:

  • Theatre and Film
  • Theatre and AI
  • Theatre and AR
  • Theatre and VR

The research and development phase was initiated in 2018 with the support of Liu Xiaoyi’s Young Artist Awards funding.
