以紀錄電影為起點,中國崑曲藝術家楊陽和日本能劇藝術家鵜澤光,兩位不同背景地域的表演藝術家述説著他/她們追尋理想與面對生活現實的矛盾,在當下社會中如何繼承傳統及發展的掙扎和挑戰。當代聲樂藝術家Olivia Salvadori唱出一首首混音版西洋歌劇詠嘆調,從普契尼到Vaporwave,以女高音式詠唱與兩種東方劇場傳統比照互動。


Starting from documentary films on two performers of diverse backgrounds – a Kunqu artist – Yang Yang from China and a female Noh artist – Hikaru Uzawa from Japan, in revealing the challenges they encounter – on how they foster the traditional art forms that they have inherited and have been representing; and how they venture for their own paths in context of the contemporary society. Whilst contemporary vocalist - Olivia Salvadori performs remixed exerts from classical opera aria, across styles from Giacomo Puccini to vaporwave, in which contrasted with the other two eastern traditional forms of theatre performances, in contemplation of different traditions in experiment.

In this production, documentary expands from the screen to live performance on stage, to intersect with a form that is beyond opera and documentary theatre. The music is certainly cross-cultural and cross-genre experimentation of classical vs avant-garde, melodic vs noise, structure vs improvisation. Performers shuffling between being themselves and performing characters of classical plays, dialogues between their real self with their presenting characters will be juxtaposed together with their different art practices and ideas, to lead us into a hybrid performance.


A composer explores traditional art forms, underground subculture and life based on his methodology for musical composition.
