ROBOT OPERA IN TAIWAN

 

Robot Opera tours to Taiwan!

In early November, while in the thick of our own Liveworks festival, Performance Space was thrilled to tour Robot Opera by Wade Marynowsky to Taiwan. The show was commissioned by Performance Space in 2015 and made its international debut at Wei Wu Ying Arts Centre in the southern Taiwanese city of Kaohsiung. The tour was joined by the killer creative team of Branch Nebula (lighting and dramaturgy) and Julian Knowles (sound), and corralled by production manager extraordinaire Annie Winter.

Robot Opera presented four shows that provoked wonder and surprise in local audiences, as the seven automations alternately interacted with and menacingly corralled audiences to a bone-vibrating sound score. The post-show Q&As revealed some surprising cross-cultural complexities; audiences familiar with the strongly defined traditions of traditional Chinese Opera grappled with the upending of narrative in Robot Opera, while others were thoroughly enthused by the participatory nature of the work. We even made the local news!
