Theatre should be larger than narratives and storytelling. Liu Xiaoyi always aims to challenge the conventions of theatrical elements, treating time, space and body as fundamental elements with an emphasis on the poetry, discourse and experimentation of theatre. Postdramatic Theatre has a lot in common with the Avant Garde theatre of the 60s. Therefore, over the span of 3 years, we chose 3 classic Postdramatic scripts as a starting point for dialogue and deconstruction, to lead us towards the search, exploration, consolidations of new creations and methods.
Postdramatic Theatre Series is a 3 year commission by Esplanade – Theatres on the Bay for Huayi – Chinese Festival of Arts (2017 – 2019).
